Knobs and wheels are still the best on cameras!

Jumbo jets still have mostly knobs. There's good reason modern aircraft haven't abandoned regular switches and knobs. For a human being in a complex environment, knobs are still the most efficient tactile-input devices. All they take to operate is muscle memory and maybe a quick glance. When a camera is done right, your fingers know where to go. It need only reference a place, not a place and a sequence of complex finger pokes that follow. A screen demands eyes on concentration for every interaction, slowing down the picture taking process. A camera should be designed so that a blind man could operate it!

The Nikon DF gave it a shot but it wasn't given to "pro" photographers for a test run. How many new cars are never tested by a pro driver before they're sold to the public?
