I was very used to using the GR without the VF. The way I like to use a 28mm camera is with a VF and at arms length. I'm probably cheating... because this method makes it a little closer to 35mm. I'm a lot looser with a camera like this which is nice. I tend to be a formalist with my normal camera set-up... lining everything up perfectly.
Winogrand was pretty loose with the 28 finder. I don't work that way, or do street photography but, I appreciate his working style and the results it produced.

With a lens like a 28, that can be prefocused for a good range at f8 and lower, I wonder if AF is slower or a waste of energy. Also, by changing the prime plane of focus, would give changing DOF results.
