Sometimes shooting without viewfider is very uncomfortable.

LX7 is my firs camera without viewfinder and the last.

In theory there is an option to buy external LVF2 but it costs over 300$ in my country
In such price people buy LX7 camera even cheaper...

Additional issue is the question if this viewfinder will be useful on the next camera.

So in sunny days I use my old NX10 (APC-C CSC.)

The problem is when I need to take small camera with zoom and there are  very bright lighting conditions - than working with the screen only is terrible.

I have both the LVF2 and the Clearviewer.  I don't think I will be going beyond the LX7, but the LVF2 is compatible with the GX1 so I hope it will be compatible with future GX family cameras should I decide to go that way.

Regarding the LVF2 vs. the Clearviewer, for me, the LVF2 works a little better than the clearviewer and the clearviewer works a lot better than nothing.  Only you can decide if the LVF2 is worth the price difference.
