Focus peaking is a very valuable feature, but if you don't magnify the picture you wont pinpoint the focus anyway. When shooting with fast lenses the magnification of the picture combined with focuspeaking makes it really easy to set the focus with precision.

That's why touchscreen is invaluable. In seconds you kan pinpoint focus on, for example, a persons eyelashes even with manual lenses. No matter if the target is in center of the picture or wherever the target is...

Without touchscreen the maneuver will take a lot longer time and you risk miss the shot. A brief moment not captured by the camera due to fiddling with the control often never come back and is lost forever.

It's a serious drawback not to have a touchscreen on a Nex-camera since their speciality is the compability with almost every manual lens on the earth.
