Leica T for a new Leica user?

To those that have the Original Leica T, I have a few questions.

1. Is it worth getting when basing it on overall user experience?
2. If you were to only keep 1 camera for everyday casual street photography, would the T be the keeper?
3. For $1600-1700 (T + 23mm Summicron), is this setup well worth the money?
4. Is the lack of an EVF a drawback in any way when taking photos? 
5. Should the EVF even be considered if taking pictures with the LCD screen is excellent enough? 
6. Is the shutter sound loud enough to attract people's attention at nearby surrounding?

Much appreciated, thanks.
