I don't see much difference between that and a newer SD1 with live view.

But I do. It has the advantage of shorter mount registration. So ... you can use almost any lens on it, with an adapter.

But I can use NEARLY any lens on the SD-1 also.  The very small wider range I would get with the shorter registration would matter very little even if I were seriously into alternate lenses instead of dabbling.

I mean, I can use a Canon 17mm T/S lens on the SD/1 if I put my mind to it.  I can use older PK lenses which exist in a vast assortment.  Expanding the range of third-party lenses helps very few people, especially compared to making the cameras as they are better.  I think more people would find that useful than being able to fit a slightly different 54.6mm Russian lens of dubious origin on the camera.
