I have a XZ-2 and find the VF 2 very helpful in bright sunlight situations even though the XZ-2 has a tilting LCD. You should find it very helpful too. However, it is pricey so shop around and consider getting one used or consider the vf-3 as another poster indicated (and don't look at the vf-4 or you will just be in a double quandry as it is superior in every way to both the VF-2 and VF-3 and is even pricier).  I already had the VF-2 when I got my XZ-2 since I also have a PEN, so the view finder does double duty for me.
