Just spent a crazy number of hours calibrating my Tamron 45mm VC at 3 distances (mfd, standard distance and infinity. So glad Tamron has this feature. I usually just use Reikan but I was getting weird results so I did it manually using 10x zoom liveview as my "control" for comparison on my 6D.
Jeez 10x zoom liveview is so accurate compared to the viewfinder. It's convincing me to switch over to mirrorless (I think you can change the size of the AF point in the EVF in the EOS R).
Does anyone shoot with the 10x zoom in live view regularly?

From a stabilization point of view I prefer to have three points of contact between me and the camera - same principle as a tripod... So holding the camera to my eye (with the viewfinder) and tucking my elbows in tight has always provided a relatively stable platform for me. The longer the telephoto the greater the potential for camera shake holding the camera at a distance to the face with just two support points (as in a cell phone).
To me it's straight physics. But to each their own.
