It would help if you would explain things

You obviously has NO clue what guess focus is, nir if what i was talking about.

The trouble is I'm not sure many people do, you've not been very clear what you mean here.

I'm pretty sure you mean that you could tell where you were on the old wheel, because it had a limit of travel so you could bounce the wheel either to a specific spot, or by feel to a position somewhat away from the end.

Which of those two do you mean?

point remains, with that new Dpm there is no longer the possibility to set the focus distance without going into the menu and looking at the Lcd.

Not so, I sometimes set AF "blind" also, without looking at the LCD.

those whi have used the previous DPs with an external OVF will know what they are losing

I have, and while it's not as easy as it was before it's still possible. The new MF system is pretty flexible and can work in conjunction with AF, opening new approaches.
