M10 + 50mm Summilux ASPH viewfinder blockage

Contemplating purchasing a 50 lux for my M10.  With Covid and my health conditions, it makes it pretty difficult for me to head over to a shop and see this combination in the flesh.

I was hoping someone could chime in on how much this lens blocks the viewfinder with and without the hood extended.

Or is this the type of lens that requires use of the visoflex not only because of the blockage but also for precise focus?

Currently using a 50 cron v4 and there is no blockage whatsoever within the framelines.  I imagine the lux is drastically different.

Any input is greatly appreciated!
