Yes, and I've read glowing reviews of cameras that were pretty shoddy once I handled them. (D3100, NEX 3/5). I'm finding it's very difficult to evaluate a camera without having it in hand for a couple days.

That said, all indications so far are that live view alone is enough of a killer feature for me that I would not buy a DSLR.
