LiveView is easily worth its cost, and almost universal in new DSLRs

I would say that live view is not indispensable, but is easily worth its low cost, which is probably just a matter of firmware once you have a CMOS or NMOS sensor. The Sony alpha-700 probably uses the same live view capable sensor as the Nikon D300.

I wasn't aware that many, percentage-wise, DSlr's had a 'liveview" feature to them. I heard the Evolt line and the new Canon have it and maybe a few more?

Percentage wise, about 90% of recent models.

Live View is offered on all the most recent models from Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Fuji (in a rather inferior version), which between them have almost 90% of the DSLR market. Only Sony, Pentax, and Sigma lack live view DSLRs for now.
