Interesting discussion. The fact of the EVF is the very reason I may opt for trading my RX100 in on the LX7 since I am one of those people who have a terrible time seeing the LCD screen in daylight and have difficulty composing images at arm's length.

For me, adding an EVF to either the LX7 or RX100 negates the advantage of having a very compact camera.  In that case, I might as well use something bigger with a built-in EVF and articulating LCD.  The whole point of both of these cameras (to me anyway) is having the smallest body possible with the best picture quality and lens possible.  Both cameras succeed in this.

With the LCD brightness turned on Sunny mode on the RX100, it is quite useable even in bright light.  Just prepare to take extra batteries, which are cheap and ubiquitous.  On the other hand, I am quite intrigued by the Clearviewer, which is something I could see myself using on occasion.

For the LX7, I guess the LVF2 is a good option for times when you might want to pop it on when you really need it.  But there's no way I'd leave an EVF or Clearviewer on either of these cameras all the time.
