I think that physical buttons and knobs are still useful, especially on cameras with viewfinders where you don't want to remove the camera from your eye in order to adjust anything. A larger screen would take away real estate from buttons.

Where cameras are lacking compared to phones is convenient connectivity. Why can't you post a picture to your blog from the review screen with a single, preconfigured, click? Such functionality was in phones even before they became "smart".
