G10 as Rangefinder?

Well, not really - perhaps pseudo-Rangefinder!

Has anyone had any experience in setting up their G10 (using either Custom 1 or 2) at a fixed focal length of 35mm and then using a Voigtlander or other 35mm viewfinder rather than the 77% G10 viewfinder? I find the 77% insufficient and/or misleading.

I prefer using a viewfinder and I'd love to be able to simply keep the focal length at 35mm. If I want to use the zoom then I can easily switch to another function.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
