Why do you want a viewfinder?

I recently bought my first semi-serious camera (a Panasonic LX10) and was wondering, why would one want a viewfinder on a camera vs. one with only a screen? What does the viewfinder give you? As much as I like my Lx10 I am already beginning to sense some limitations on a screen-only camera but want to here from those who are more experienced to see if my impressions are at all accurate.

As a follow-up what would a purely optical viewfinder digital camera like a film SLR (if they still make such things!) offer vs. a digital viewfinder and vice-versa?

ANSWER:
Panasonic LX10
