Touch screen focussing is extremely useful when using manual lenses in a studio situation (on a tripod), or for macro work.

I must have missed something here, I am referring to using manual glass such as Voigtlander & Leica, are you saying that touching the screen would focus these lenses?!? I doubt it.

Touching the screen would digitally zoom the screen at the point you touched. This lets you use the focus peaking more effectively with your manual lenses.

Ah, got ya. I do this but using the tri navi top dials while looking through the view finder. The touch would be useful on a tripod but I wouldn't miss it provided they continued with the Tri Navi system.

Now that is something I would be gutted if they done away with. When playing with the Nex 6 I missed it straight away.
