Do you shoot using the Live View function

I'll never go back to the viewfinder

I had a D700 for couple of weeks and returned it. I had it long enough to determine that I want a Nikon to complement my Canons. I am wating for the D700x. I must admit that I do not remember much about Nikon's Live View except the LCD became somewhat washed out in sunlight (although it was cut above my 5D's readability).

I manually focus all of my lenses including the AF ones. Live View as implemented in the 5D mkII is a marvel for landscape photography. Also, the LCD has a coating on it that allows one to clearly see the image for focusing and metering purposes in most types of daylight. I am hoping Nikon takes note of this.
