I was thinking about settings such as ISO incements, timer configuration, Favourites, clock set, world time, Fn Button set, highlights, Custom. Set Mem. LCD Display style, LCD display info, LVF/LCD mode to name a few.

The kind of features which serious photographers normally fiddle with ahead of time.

Sure, those one-time adjustments are OK to do with a touchscreen, but I have to wonder how often someone really makes those changes, and if it warrants the higher cost of the camera to implement touchscreen technology for functionality that's rarely used.

The marginal cost is acceptable IMO, considering that once developed it becomes highly reusable firmware code.
