Based on the present pricing, the Adorama deal includes the optical viewfinder and $50 for really a great price of under $650. The Limited Edition can be had for a bit under $700. I am up in the air on which I should get. The Limited appeals to me for its included hood and build enhancements though a viewfinder makes the original model extremely tempting. I wanted to keep my total investment to under/around $700 for either of these cameras. I have read some comments about whether having the viewfinder is a detriment to the camera's usage. I'm not sure that's the case for me as I get more frustrated when I don't have one available.

Have any of you dealt with this conundrum and if yes, which way did you go and why?

Thanks

They are the same camera unless the looks of the "limited" appeal more.

I can't see why the viewfinder is detrimental to the use of the camera although its advantages might vary according to the shooting tastes of the owner.
