I read in other forums that 'Nikon recommends' that when shooting in LiveView you should cover the VF with the viewfinder eyepiece shutter to avoid light entering and causing incorrect exposure. I checked in the D800 manual (pg. 56 in the first paragraph) and sure enough it says the same thing. What do you pro's, who may use LiveView a lot, think about this "recommendation"...is it a problem with the D800?
