The other benefit to using resistive is that it works with gloves. People often wear gloves and use cameras at the same time.

Actually, that is not really true. Nokia and Sony both have capacitive touchscreens that work with gloves and a number of other things as well. Sony just enabled it on an older phone about a month or two back, when Nokia announced their new phones...

There is the general useability problem with resistive screens, plus let's not forget that a capacitive screen can be made much more resistant to abrasions and physical force, whereas a resistive will just crack the underlying display.

tl;dr: bad choice for Sony and us.
