I use DSLRs for professional work and always use them with manual focusing and manual exposure. I find live view to be as close to my beloved 4x5's as I can expect in the digital era, and it makes up in part for the poor focusing with screens/viewfinders of DSLRs. For fun I shoot Contax III and IIIa with film and Zeiss lenses. I agree with you about simplicity--it is ironic that it is so expensive, but given the nature of electronics and marketing it isn't surprising.
