NOOOO! PLEASE DO NOT!

1. I cant see the screen of my phone in the conditions when I like to take photos (bright sunshine, sunshine bouncing off the waves). Touch screens do NOT work if you cant see to touch them.

2. I cant see the screen of my phone wihtout putting on my glasses. I then need to take the glasses off to see what I am going to photograph, then put them on again to see the screen. At least with the Viewfinder I can adjust the optics so I can see it clearly without my glasses.

3. I cant adjust a touch screen without letting go of the device. How can you hold the device steady if you cant use two hands and a forehead? Or elbows on a rock and camera held steady.

Yes: I can see some VERY useful eatures being added to a camera: sharing over wifi, open API to allow apps for PC, Apple, Windows Phone, Android, websites etc to be built to control it.
