As someone who requires reading glasses I find the use of a dioptre corrected evf (or ovf) essentail in a camera. Even at arms length I find it difficult to check the LCD to see if a picture is in perfect focus or to change menu settings. When I am out and about (think tourist) I don't want to keep having to put my glasses on to take a picture. I'm probbaly not the only one who thinks the same.

I see no reason why a corner evf should not be tiltable, even 45 degress would make a lot of difference. By the same reasoning I don't need a tiltable rear screen as I don't use it to take pictures - only to view them with my reading glasses on when I can just as well tilt the camera.

A small tiltable corner evf and a fixed screen would make for a very compact body.
