Concerning bright sun hitting the display, the flip up display is a great help too. I'm wearing cameras with the neckstrap and find the flip up display more agreeable than having the display flipped out at the side of the camera because you have to remain careful that the display doesn't get entangled in the neckstrap or any other strap (that of the spectacles, a long necklace, a purse or any other things). The flip up displays remaining nearer of the camera body are less at risk.

Well, no because if you're in a situation like that with the articulated display you can just use it flat like a fixed LCD.

When taking close ups of wildflowers with a tripod, you're often in a fairly constrained situation where the picture can only be taken from one angle. I would have to experiment before I was sure how the flip up would work, and I can't do that without buying the camera. I'm seeing prices here in Australia, body only, of over $A 1,100, so I can't afford to make a mistake.
