Re: Looks like the biggest thing is setting focus point...

Reading everyone's post and other reviews and my own experience it appears that lack of touch screen is really a major problem when setting AF point. With Canon 70D and u43rds cameras like oly OMD EM5 it is a major plus to have.

I view it like focus peaking. You can MF without it, but once you've tasted it, it's stupid to completely dismiss it. It should be at the very least be standard with the option of using it or not.

Touch screens/focus are the same except it's for AF. Those arguing against it sound like close-minded dinosaurs.
