By then, there might be an A7C II. I thought about waiting til second gen since I don't have any major travel til next year, but there is enough I wanted to do in the mean time I went ahead and committed. I am coming from smartphones and my Sony RX100IV so I don't really have much I can say about the view finder. I honestly never used the one on my RX100IV unless it was super sunny. I think it is fine for me, but I am more a point and shoot with maybe a few tweaks photographer - I only need the viewfinder for framing. I also focus on video when I am out and about now. Work has been crazy so I probably won't be able to truly put the camera through its paces until this weekend.
