Live view has its uses with a DSLR, such as macro shooting or long exposure shooting or of course video. Some others too. But for handheld walk around normal shooting it is not ideal.
The camera focuses slower in live view because it is focusing without the mirror. It may hunt for focus.
You cannot hold the camera as steady out at arms length as you can bracing it against hour face, with elbows against your body.
When you add larger lenses to your kit, the arms length style isn't even an option.
It is hard to zoom at arms length.
It is hard to see the LCD in bright sun.
It is hard to track moving things and keep the subject centered in the frame with the camera out away from your face.
All of which leads to the observation that many otherwise excellent cameras fail to reach their potential for lack of an eye-level viewfinder. The advantage of most of those cameras is their compactness, but a mechanical viewfinder, as in a DSLR, sets a lower limit on both size and weight. So the viewfinder has to be electronic. But an electronic viewfinder with acceptable speed and resolution is very hard on batteries, and a larger battery adds to size and weight. So the bottom line is that despite the dramatic advances in digital camera technology over the past ten years, we still have some distance to go.
