Many of us know how to accomplish this without a touch screen. DSLR's don't use touch screens for focus generally, BTW.

Of course, the cameras are still usable without the touch screen. The point is they could become more usable with touch. Advanced DSLR's have joysticks instead.

Sort of... I find the touch screen actually slows things down. Not so much on the NX300, since it has less wheels anyway, but it's considerably slower then using a NEX7 that has dials dedicated to f stop, shutter, & iso. I don't have to pull my eye from the evf to chimp those changes like I do with the touch screen, where the FN menu covers the preview I'm trying to adjust.

Composing in the viewfinder and composing on the screen are different styles of shooting. Look at the Rolleiflex or the Hasselblad on the one hand, and the Leica and the Contax on the other. The camera designs have coexisted in the 70 years since those early cameras.
