Yes! The VF2 is worth every cent. I have an M4/3 GX1 which uses that viewfinder...and I also have the LX5 and GF1 with the original VF1 (not anywhere near as good as the VF2). You gain control over camera movement when you use an eyelevel finder...and it is invaluable in bright light. In fact, I think it is valuable in any lighting situation. It makes a very good camera even better.

I have the very same set up as LMNCT and agree with what is said above.  I don't have an LX7, but the VF2 works brilliantly on the GX1.  The LVF1 is invaluable on the LX5 and GF1 even though it is not nearly the quality of the LVF2
