Your opions please, which of these do you agree with?

  • Wouldn't be without it
  • Great step forward for photographers 
  • Would be good if it worked
  • Like the idea but too fiddly for me 
  • Never use it
  • Just a gimmick 

Feel free to add your own comments that are more relevant than my suggestions

"Would be good if it worked". To use the touchscreen, I have to take the eye from the viewfinder. Dedicated buttons are better.

I have to say that trying to focus by poking the right eye on a touchscreen is much harder than moving the little green square using the arrow buttons.
