2/3" camera operators - has anyone stopped using typical viewfinders?

I used to love my B&W normal style viewfinder. I know there are color ones too but don't own one.

Nowadays there are much cheaper EVFs (like Zacuto) or even small LCDs you can attach to rails. Has anyone switched over to using one of those instead?

Should I just ask, "What viewfinders do people currently buy for their new or soon to be purchased B4 mount cameras?"

Ive used the Zacuto one.. but they all seem to get wobbly during the day or get knocked a bit.. and its really off putting when they arent exactly horizontal.. and they need batteries.. basically a pain..

For my money,and if you are used to working with a VF "built in" I,d buy the F5 or 55..
