I too had problems with the screen in sunlight, so I bought a used VF-2, about $160 if I recall correctly; I wouldn't go out without the VF-2 anymore. Mind you, I would not have paid the $250+tx they ask for in stores around here.

As everyone said, it's great for composition, much better than using the screen, and also adds lots of stability to your camera while taking shots. On the down side it does add bulk, and my XZ-1 won't fit in my SNAP-R bag anymore.
