With the LCD screen I cannot tell if my distant subject is smiling or if their eyes are closed.

Then DON'T look through the camera, look over the top!

Best detailed view finder ever..

Golly! I am amazed anybody needs to be told this!!

It's often not so simple.  My camera's resolving power at around 35mm is about the same as my bare eyes.  So, if I'm shooting at, say,  200mm (which is extremely often for me) I can't see enough detail "over the top".  Further, looking "over the top" means losing your attention on framing which usually means missing the shot.
