No viewfinder? Is this a problem?

Hi, I am about to pull the trigger on this, but I am wondering if not having a viewfinder is a drawback. I know they now sell an LCD one for an extra $70, but would I need it? How do you frame your shots?

Thanks,

David

I'm sure you've figured out what you needed by now, but for others, posted is a video I did recently without the LCD screen. I DO own one, but it wasn't practical most of the time. The camera is so wide it doesn't really matter. What you point the camera at is what you are going to pick up, at the widest and even middle angles. it isn't until the 'Narrow' angle that you may need the LCD screen.
