G15 Live View, External Flash and Optical Viewfinder

I had a Canon G2 and gave it away to a relative several years ago. I currently have a Panasonic TZ5. I've never liked the delay in firing the shutter and the lack of an optical viewfinder. I am now considering the G15. I have a few questions.

1. Does it have Live View?

2. Can it fire a Canon flash that is not mounted to the camera? I have a Canon 580 EXII.

3. I've seen some comments that the optical viewfinder is not very accurate. After buying the Panasonic, I decided I would never buy a camera without an optical viewfinder again. You can't beat an optical viewfinder in bright sunlight. Is there really an issue with the optical viewfinder?
