He/she means the screen is the viewfinder, and [I'm assuming] pinpoints focus manually due to focus peaking. We can use, however, a mounted viewfinder, fixed at 17mm. It's not perfect, but you know, could work for some.
Oh, I feel stupid! I thought he had found something to overcome the shortcomings of the live-view screen! I like it myself except in bright outside situations where I can hardly view the scene at all. Even some kind of fixed viewfinder to slip into the hotshoe would be a real nice aid in this kind of situation, say something fixed for maybe a 50 mm lens, and then just make mental adjustments for wider or narrower views.

Hehe it happens.. And did you click on the page I linked? That is exactly a fixed viewfinder that slips in the hotshoe. Too expensive for me, being stuck at 17mm, but maybe you'd like it. 50 mil would be awesome.
