I would say Nikon Live View is far worse than Canon's in general... but regarding this specific issue, isn't this solved by using Mup? I always use this mode when I take macro photos anyway.

Some of the problem is solved. But it keeps you from using live view. Or, at the very least, it makes you back out of live view and then go to mirror up. And you still get the vibration from the first shutter curtain, which you don't get with Canon or Sony.

Having done macros with both systems, I find that the Canon with live view is much easier to work with and produces generally sharper pictures.
