I like my DR-5 viewfinder. But I had a thought you might try which is much less expensive. Since I don't have Live View on my camera this is an idea I can't use yet, but it comes from my days shooting ground glass ideal format. When the camera was low and pointing up, I used a girlfriends pocket makeup mirror. Just slipped it at right angles to the ground glass and could evaluate focus under the cloth. You might try the mirror with Live View and see if that works. Might save some scratch. If you do get the DR5 I think you'll like it.
