The LV IS a neat feature, but once you have it...it's a little bit addictive...the only way to stop is to remember that you're losing image frame (it's much easier not to get addicted when you don't have it =)).
I don't get your posts, in one you trashtalk Live View, and in this you say it's addictive....

The D90 viewfinder has 96% coverage.... So I'm sure Live View has something similar...
it's me ramin.

You see less in the Live View of what the picture is going to be than in the viewfinder.
That does not make sense, why would a digital display not show 100% of the sensor.

Guess what? It does.

Lol it's nothing unusual for someone to think something is bad, but find it addictive. I don't think the LV has 96%...but more like 91 or 92...which is still problematic.

Don't ask me...look at Olympus or Sony...they don't...ask them. Also, I have not been able to locate the LV coverage for the D90...maybe because nobody cares enough about it due to not using it^^

Sony's a 550 and 550 cover 100%.

Here is the D90 test pattern: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/D90/D90VFAL.HTM It is near 100%.

You can't locate the LV coverage for the D90 because it's 100% like most other live views out there.

Olympus utilizes a two-mode live view system. Most live view systems simply involves having the camera lock its mirror up and display the image directly from the main sensor, which would result in 100% coverage.

Olympus has this mode plus a 2nd mode where a 2nd mirror in the view finder redirects the light to a smaller secondary sensor within the view finder, and the image is displayed from this smaller sensor, which offers smaller coverage but has the advantage that the main mirror is not locked up and the main sensor is not exposed.

Sony has implemented this 2-mode live view system in their newer cameras like the A380 and the A550, hence why Sony and Olympus has "non-100% coverage live view modes" but they also have the other live view mode that provides 100% coverage.

Speaking of Live View again I find myself using it more than I would have thought as I can switch into it and see how my settings affect the photo (ie. metering the scene) before switching back to non-Live View to take the photos as the response is faster.

Good choice.

I'm luck enough to have a good selection of nicer Nikon glass, but this lens has been stuck to my camera almost exclusively since I got it. You'll like it I'm sure.
