Split screen absence in modern DSLRs is a mystery to many people..., it surely should be available as an alternative in modern DSLRs... IMO AF makes photographers more lazy ...and "more lazy" surely affects the result to an extend... I also believe that all auto functions of a camera should be designed as alternatives to the traditional "all controls to photographer" - now "ancient" way... but that's just me.

Yet, there is a provision for screens to be removed with the traditional "through the mount way" and nothing would have to be altered for users that don't miss it in modern Nikon DSLRs... so, no harm to them either, just a very useful alternative for traditional users.

Split screens affect metering.
