Is the lack of a touch screen on the A6000 a deal-breaker?

Is the lack of a touch screen on the A6000 a deal-breaker?
May 18, 2014

I'm very interested in the A6000. It seems to have everything - except for the one glaring omission of a touch screen.

I look enviously at the micro four thirds options like the Panasonic GX7 and Olympus E-P5 that have a touch screen that I can pick up for around same price or even cheaper on some deals where I am.

But then I wonder if it will really make much difference to my photography. Choosing one of these other options means I miss out on the A6000's flash that I can tilt to bounce (a feature I love). And I already have the ECM-XYST1M microphone from my RX100M2 to use on the A6000 for video, so the A6000 is the obvious choice.

I just want to get some idea of what I would be missing out on by not having a touch screen.
