SLRs have been around for 76 years, the first one being Ihagee Kine Exakta. Viewfinders on these early models were awful. I have seen plenty of Hasselblads in the 80-es and the viewfinders were not impressive at all. The viewfinder on my Pentax 67 from 1993 doesn't have a chance compared to the viewfinder of my Sony Alpha 900. Development have been impressive in those 76 years.
In comparison, EVF still is wearing baby shoes.
Yes, we have liftoff. I used the touch screen to activate 5x magnification, and could either touch the "+" or use the dial to increase it to 10x. Best of all, when I move my eye to the viewfinder, it automatically switches, and keeps the magnification mode. Neat.
[sigh] But I still miss the viewfinder of my old R7, or any SLR, for that matter. The experience isn't the same, even if I can make it work.
