G10 as Rangefinder?

Well, not really - perhaps pseudo-Rangefinder!

Has anyone had any experience in setting up their G10 (using either Custom 1 or 2) at a fixed focal length of 35mm and then using a Voigtlander or other 35mm viewfinder rather than the 77% G10 viewfinder? I find the 77% insufficient and/or misleading.

I prefer using a viewfinder and I'd love to be able to simply keep the focal length at 35mm. If I want to use the zoom then I can easily switch to another function.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse in him to keep looking.
