An EVF would only make the camera worse, and significantly so. No matter how many times EVF fans are rediscovering the "let's copy Sony" idea, it's still a bad one... you want a Sony, go and buy a Sony!

A major advantage would be the affordability of such a beast. If you see how extremely "cheap" the Sony A3000 is compared to DSLRs with the same sensor/feature-set, then imagine what it would do in the FF market. It would truly bring FF to the common people. Like the K1000 did once. That's why it would be so cool if Pentax would be the one to make such a breakthrough.
There's nothing cool in bringing crippled products on the market. "Breakthrough"? No, it's called cutting corners everywhere, and for example it had the cheapest EVF they could get/make: small (0.7x magnification) and low resolution.
