Is the optical viewfinder on the G11 useful?

That is, is it big enough to be of any real help? Following the theft of my LX-3 I am considering the options again.

Is it 'conservative' at all focal lengths? I know that the field of view is not precisely accurate, but that is not a big issue provided the real coverage is more than the VF indicates, not less. One can always crop a bit.

Thanks.
