Re: Missing the touch-to-focus on my NEX-6 -- suggestions?

I have noticed that several people here seem disappointed about the lack of touch screen focus on the NEX 6. Therefore I have a question to you and anyone else who has used this feature on another camera.

I spent extra money on buying the 6 as opposed to the 5 to have the EVF and mostly compose and shoot while looking through the EVF. Would a possible touch-to-focus mode on the screen work while using the EVF? Wouldn't I have to take the camera from my eye in order to find the right place to press the screen? That wouldn't fit with the way I'm used to taking pictures.

Perhaps that is why the touch screen isn't a feature of the NEX-6.
