looks like it's a poplular feature

I use it when I don't want mirror slap and want critcal focus with a tripod. It's great for zooming in to fine tune focus. You can't do that with the optical viewfinder. So basically whenever I'm shooting with the tripod I'm using live view.

Ditto. Unfortunately only Canon seems to have gotten rid of the extra mirror flip when in live view, so you still get mirror slap with Olympus and the others.
