Use the VF to compose and shoot, then cover the LCD w/ you hand to review photos. You could also get a LCD loupe or shade if you rely on instant review: Camtrol 3" LCD Camshade CAMHS4030 B&H Photo Video

I purchased an anti-glare screen protector for an iPad on clearance a few days ago and cut it up to make anti-glare screen protectors for all my digital cameras. I hasn't been sunny around here the past few days so I haven't tested to see if it helps. Hopefully tomorrow will be a nice and sunny day, I will try to test it out and update my post.

Remember the hood used with large format cameras in the late 19th century? I'm convinced that so long as your pupils are affected by bright ambient light, it will always be harder to compose via an lcd. Throw a jacket over your head.
