This is only my opinion and reflects what works for me personally.  YMMV

I recently took a photo vacation to airplane museums in Arizona and So. California.  Extremely bright sun was the normal lighting condition. The light is not ony from the sky, but the ground acts like a "reflector" as well.

I had significant issues with trying to use the LCD screen to frame my photos.  I confess to being a serious "frame filler".  Without a viewfinder, using the LCD only, I did manage to cut the nose or tail off a number of airplane pix. I couldn't really see the LCD clearly in these conditions and was often guessing or trying to use other parts of the scene to frame the target of the photo.

The first thing I did after returning home was to order the external viewfinder for the LX7. I like a viewfinder.  I am used to pressing the camera up against my forehead to steady it before pressing the shutter button. It also enables me to get a better hold on this little camera.

Anyway, that's how I roll.
