Lovely viewfinder.

Irritating that the older LVF1 came with a lovely case with an insert into which the finder fitted.

The LVF2 has just a plastic moulding to slide over the shoe fitting, and only comes with a drawstring bag!

Also, the hot shoe protector on the LX7 is all plastic, and clips in the front, whereas the LX5's one had a little metal spring plate which made its removal much easier.  Also, the spring in the hotshoe of the LX7 seems much stronger than in the LX5, so pushing on and removing the LVF2 is significantly stiffer than on the LX5.  Quite hard in fact.

Minor points, but annoying when an earlier version works more easily.  However, the increased resolution of the LVF2 is worth the effort!
