I don't think Live View would obviate the need for a DSLR. I have the  
feature on my Olympus DSLR, and while it is useful in some specific  
situations (e.g. shooting above a crowd or discreetly taking pictures  
of the se?orita at the neighbouring table), there is no way I would  
ever rely on it for normal shooting. A proper optical viewfinder  
please. I once looked through the electronic viewfinder of a Digilux  
and it was absolutely horrible.
