I'm just thinking how useful has this feature been to you? I am an
event photographer by the way specializing in weddings.

I don't actually shoot in live view mode but I use it to focus close-up shots at full magnification. For this it is excellent.

I think for the LV mode to be useful for actual shooting the mirror would have to not come down between LV viewing and the actual taking of the shot. The current implementation is just too noisy and slow for events.
