Sony A300, Canon 1000D, Oly E520
all these fits the bill
Entry level with Liveview.
Is the Canon 450D considered an entry level DSLR? It's a pretty decent camera overall.
I was also choosing between 450D and A300....in the end I choose 450D mainly because the viewfinder is bigger and I feel more comfortable with it, the A300's LCD is kinda thick and makes me uncomfortable looking thru the small viewfinder. I think you should go to a mega-store( Courts, Harvey..) and have a feel of those models....choose the one u more comfortable with...

To me, is more than sufficient to take person on the stage (for typical events). Unless, you are talking about taking the picture where the person is not on the stage?
By the way, I did mention is for such events. I can't think of a situation where I need to raise my hand to take landscape. If it is for landscape, I would prefer a better location + tripod.

But nevertheless. the fast AF in LV is an advantage over most dslr, even though you won't get 100% view from the LCD during composition.
