D800 normal autofocus and liveview

Since having a personal discovery of the extra features that liveview has on the D800 I am finding that using it gives me far more keepers that are accurate and sharp when using lenses such as the 85mm f1.8 wide open.
I am aware that liveview can be more accurate but even when trying to adjust lenses ( unsuccessfully to note a major difference) using fine tune the difference between the two focus types is pretty noticeable. At more general apertures such as f5.6 it is less noticeable.
I certainly find myself using liveview more now when using those wide apertures and am very pleased with the results.
