All I have to say is... :hail::hail::hail::hail::hail::hail::hail::hail: I initially thought it might just be a nice-to-have. Turns out, with night photography, it's been a MUST for me. Being able to lift the mirror, see the image on the LCD, and THEN zoom way way in so I can manual focus to perfection.... is priceless. I've gotten some exceptional night shots on my main lens (Tamron). I'm sure if I had expensive L glass, I could get tack sharp night photos. If anyone is on the market for a DSLR and is wondering about Live View.. now you have one person's opinion. I'm also curious, anyone else have any great uses for Live View besides night photography?
