To be honest I don't think the screen is big enough for touch, because people would expect them to drive menu selections as well.

Touch maybe on less expensive cameras, but come on, we should know how to focus with the ring people!

Just my humble opinion, I understand the reasons many like touch. I kind of think about it like the reason Apple hasn't released a larger iPhone. It doesn't make ergonomic sense.

Many people who use touch screen are experienced users, including pro photographers, who can use the camera in different ways but still prefer the touch screen for at least some types of shooting. You will find a few posts in this thread from users describing how they use it.

Chad, it's not just for shooting. After I take a shot, I can review the shot and zoom in instantly anywhere I touch to check focus/details. As it stands, I now zoom in and then use the little wheel button to move the area displayed on the screen; very cumbersome.
