There is a thread currently running about certain lenses not auto-focusing correctly while in Live View. I have rarely ever used Live View.

Other than using it to take a shot over a crowd or in some position where you can't hold the camera to you eye or maybe video, I can't think of why someone would want to use Live View. I find that I can see so much better through the view finder.

Am I missing something? I ask this question out of ignorance. What are the benefits of using the Live View mode?
