Yes, a bummer about the dial but it had to go to make room for the EVF, but I noticed that they added a Q button to give you quick access to change WB, ISO and one other thing. Can't remember where I saw the specifics but you can see the Q button on the Nikon USA product page. I think that button option is a good alternative especially in exchange for the EVF.

Well, Mr. eagle-eye here totally missed the Q button. Nice catch! Depending on how Nikon configures the Q, I guess I wouldn't miss the dial all that much. What I will miss, if it's gone, is the customizable My Settings selection.

I have been using the P7700 a lot for close-up shots, especially of shells we collect at the beach; the lens/sensor combination is excellent! For me, it's a good thing that they kept the same sensor and lens in the P7800.
