Why is there no touchscreen in Sony a6000 or a7
Jul 27, 2014

I am a Canon user who is still looking for other cameras that are high quality IQ and low light like Canon but clearly lighter and smaller.  I purchased a Sony a6000 and love the lightness and fast af and fps I get.  However, I often miss touchscreen LCD (like I have in my Canon 70D) .  Just curious why Sony never puts touchscreen LCDs in any of their E, FE or A mount cameras.  Sony seems to be a major panel maker and puts excellent touchscreen in their tablets and all-in-ones.

It would be a major plus to me if they did put touchscreen LCDs on all their cameras (at least the smaller ones).
