Re: Poll on the use of Live View on DSLR

Live view helps with fast manual focus lenses. They are hard to focus below F 4.0 through the viewfinder. I've tried it plenty of times off a tripod, where I thought I had good focus through the viewfinder, but it was off when I checked it through live view. It has something to do with the mirrors on DSLRS being semi-transparent. At F 4.0 or above, those lenses focus pretty well through the viewfinder, and it isn't just the greater depth of field that makes it appear that way. I can focus them at 5.6 through the viewfinder, then check in live view and the focus is spot on. Doesn't work at wide apertures, though.
