I don't think of TAv as lazy, but it is one of my favorite settings as well. I have ISO limited to 6400. Last night I was photographing a friend's band in a small club, dark, but stage lights that were changing the exposure constantly. I chose the aperture I wanted for DOF, set me shutter speed where i learned it would keep the musicians from showing movement blur and let the camera adjust the ISO every shot. If it was too dark at 6400, it would tell me and then I could consider opening aperture up or slowing the shutter speed down or waiting for the lighting to change again.

I took over 100 photos of their show and controlled the things I needed to control without having to constantly fiddle in a changing environment. It's a great setting.
