Kenneth, London Excellent cameras

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Makes the Nex 5 a more flexiable camera. I found the LCD screen difficult to view in bright light. Compact. Has the ability to tilt 90 degrees.
Bad points:
Expensive! Light drop off when viewing through the viewfinder seems considerable compared to normal view finders but this could be when using the A Mount adaptor, using E mount lenses the light loss is not too excessive.

John, Enthusiastic photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
What a great EVF, clearly the best on the market and although its a bit expensive its very much worth it when combined with the Nex-5n. Large, bright, way better than any consumer DSLR's with tiny OVF, it gives full frame DSLR viewfinders a run for their money. Works really well when using the peaking feature and manual focusing and the on screen histogram is a welcome feature.
Bad points:
None really except the fairly steep price. If I had to find any fault it would that shadow definition is lost in bright light and becomes dark (this of course is made up for when used in low light situations).

Alex, Bognor Regis enthusiast.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fast, and great information display. Out of all evfs the di opter slide is by far the easiest to set. The eye start is fast. The eye cup is comfortable.
Bad points:
The unit can get caught up in the camera bag, pulling the unit into the vertical position, this may damage the connection if you are not careful. Some form of lock would help this.

Fantastic view through the view finder. I also like the way you can adjust the angle of viewing. Well pleased
