I hear you, I do use the EVF with mode 2 focus assist. I never use the LCD ever!

With my CV 15 and Zeiss 21 I just use the focus scale to set pre, hyper or zone. even when opened up I find it impossible to accurately focus the 21 (with the 15 at f4.5 forget it lol) so I just use the scale.

With my 35 Lux and 50 Cron I use mode 2 opened up then stop down to shoot. Effective but slow.

How I yearn for an optical rangefinder again. If the M10 keeps the optical RF with hybrid framelines and incorporates a flip down EVF like the X100 and with mode 2 FA from the GXR then it will be so sweet!

Add an external, tiltable EVF and I might be tempted. Especially if it is responsive and has better high ISO performance ( something I really value highly - shoot with an X100 for a while and see the buttery tones of the RAW files at 3200 and you'll see what I mean).

Yes I love my GXR but my heart and my head says "optical rangefinder".
