For people with less than perfect eyesight, composing and shooting at arm length is sometimes frustrating if not next to impossible. No matter how good and bright the LCD screen is, except for using camera on tripod in Live View mode and image review, there is no advantage of LCD screen over good viewfinder. No amount of adapting on user part will change that IMHO.

Why keep people saying that using an LCD screen requires holding the camera at arm lenght?

That's nonsense.

And one of the greatest advantages of an LCD over a viewfinder is the freedom it allows when composing an image: the freedom of not having your eye glued to the viewfinder can be very liberating.

It would at least be nice to have the option so that both type of photographer's are accommodated. Nonetheless, the DP cameras never will.
