    not talking about add-on right angle finders, one which allows viewing when your eye is maybe 20-30 inches from the screen?

    Only one I can think of is the old Kodak DCS 620/760 series.

    I am really getting into shooting street and this would be invaluable

    ...may just go with an F3 as at least it takes my existing lenses.

    A D5000 with its articulated LCD screen might be a better choice if you want low-angle views and or want to be low-profile: those old DCS Kodaks are monstrous!

    You could go for the approach of Joe Wigfall (google him, and there's a good video on youtube too) and learn to "see with your fingers" - shoot without looking through the viewfinder. I've tried it a couple of times and with a little practice you can get some good results on the street.
