Thank you. It's good to be here.

The reason I'd like to use LV for still photography is that 1) it has the potential to offer a more accurate preview of the final image (in terms of exposure) than the viewfinder, which does not reflect changes made to aperture, shutter speed, and ISO and 2) it's much easier to do critical manual focusing in LV than through the viewfinder, especially because you can zoom in to the image in LV (this feature is often helpful in landscape photography and whenever else one wants to get the focus just right on a distant object that is not at infinity).

Of course, as you point out, others' mileage may vary.
