For critical tripod based shooting live view gives a permanent mirror lock-up and more accurate contrast based focus, though I guess you could pre-focus with standard AF and switch to MF before going into live view.

Not spontaneous enough and defeats the advantage of SLR for me.

My comment was in the context of the OP's tripod based tests using MLU (mirror lockup) and shutter delay settings. This is hardly a spontaneous shooting arrangement, and I was merely suggesting another way of achieving the same shooting conditions in this situation - i.e when using a tripod.

I don't quite understand where you are coming from with your comment.
