Overall, I quite enjoyed trying out the RX1R II. The only downside, apart from my qualms with the viewfinder situation, is the battery life. With only screen-based options for composing, the Sony chews through batteries like a '57 Chevy chugs gas. With a full charge, I hit the last bar of my battery life after about 30-40 minutes of shooting. One way to solve the problem might be to stick a sports finder, like this Ikodot in the hot shoe and compose the old fashioned way. Either way, serious shooters will want to bring plenty of batteries with them if they intend to put this camera through its motions.
