I am not really sure of the difference. Could the electronic encounter problems in the dark, for instance?

Absolutely...an electronic live view in low light conditions typically has to 'gain up' the view, resulting in a brighter but grainier view, so you can see what you're shooting. Also, live view systems in most DSLRs use a separate contrast-detection based focus, rather than the camera's phase-detect focus system, when focusing in live view. Moreover, live view systems will display the scene with the lens aperture wide open, whereas when you shoot it will stop down as set. All of those variables can alter the focus between live view and actual shot. If you were to manually focus in live view, then shoot directly from live view, the focus should stay exactly as it was last set, but you'd have to be aware of the possibility of camera shake from the mirror flipping around before the shot - you could lock up the mirror to avoid that issue.

Yes, it isn't very good though. The image merely blinks in an attempt to show a preview. Pressing it shakes the camera though due to it's position, so it isn't fantastic really.
