How do you look into an EVF & avoid your nose touching the screen?

Touch screen switches-off when the EVF activates (which it does automatically when your face gets close to it because of a proximity sensor), at least that is what happens on the NEX-5R with external EVF fitted

My attempt at a joke, but yes I agree there is no harm to have the option for all & disable if you so wish.

Personally its not very high on my want list, but I wouldn't turn it down.

I guess it depends on how you do AF...  I like to chose my own focus point and so the touchscreen speeds that process up enormously rather than having to 'jog' the focus point around the screen by repeatedly pressing the D-button.  With MF lenses the touchscreen allows you to select the point for 'focus assist' again without needing to 'jog' the point around

I don't use touchscreen for anything else myself (certainly not for menus etc) and if you let the camera chose the AF point and don't use MF lenses then a touchscreen probably isn't so much use to you
