Re: Have you used it?

Did you even read my original post? If you're using it zoomed all the way in you're looking at a 200% magnification. Step it back one... I find no problems whatsoever in using it, even in near darkness.

Zoom in all the way while trying to do critical focus... it is highly pixelated when it should be pure and smooth... that's all...

It is a horrible implementation in this day and age... plain and simple. It should look as sharp as the resulting image...

Better yet, take a look at a fully zoomed in live view... take a shot and review the shot at full magnification (fully zoomed in) if it does NOT look the same as it did in LiveView, LiveView sucks.... that's the problem!!

I rely on it in total darkness or somewhat dark shooting situations when focusing using the viewfinder is useless or close to it and/or the AF system is unable to get a good lock (no light) etc.
