I use both ways, normally I shoot a bit wider and do fine cropping via PS
BTW is your viewfinder 100%, non pre cameras are usually not 100% so it will be difficult to do fine cropping with your cam.

try to compose during the shooting

occasionally cropping out bits of distracting edges is ok

Most cameras give approx 95% of the picture in the viewfinder. Take a few shots with your camera and find out how the 5% is distributed. So the next time you take the REAL shots, keep the 5% in mind and compose it a little tighter than you instinctively want to.

yes and mostly the distribution is not equal. You have you find out thou experience where the 5% is distributed (eg, the 5% may be more on the left side of the viewfinder than right)
