Re: Off center hotshoe with viewfinders...

The base of the Leica 21-24-28 variable viewfinder is off-set, so as to get the finder as close to center as darnit. It's a few millimetres off. If your intention is to use a 28mm for street, it'll work well for you.

By and large the off-centre aspect of the external viewfinders is no big problem. Or, stated another way, it is no more frustrating than the few degrees the hotshoe is off-horizontal from the lens view.
