Used Panasonic DMW-VF1 External Optical View Finder (24mm) for Lumix DMC-LX3.
OPTICAL viewfinder, not the ELECTRONIC VIEWFINDER
Yes, it is small enough that when mounted in the hot shoe the flash for the LX3 can still pop up and be used.
I don't see why this wouldn't work as an optical viewfinder with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 or the Leica equivalent Dlux4 or Dlux5.
I sold my LX3 a few months ago and forgot about this accessory.
