There's lots of tricks to using an LCD more effectively, this notion that you have to hold the camera up in the air just because you're using an LCD probably came from the compact p&s world, but it's rather silly. Even the GF series has a tilting LCD now, it's pretty easy to tilt it up, brace it against your body, and shoot while looking down; effectively steadying it just as well as you would while using a VF against your forehead. Won't work for every shot or angle but I'm surprised it's not done more often.

Shooting in landscape, I now start to see the benefits. Had a good time out yesterday and shot some street pictures. Yes indeed, keeping the camera at chest height was quite good. This will work for me.

My question now: Do you have any trick for effective LCD use when shooting in portrait?
