85% of my landscape photos ( are taken with the camera within 1-2 feet of the ground - and articulating screen would be great for that...

I do product photography for a living ( . I am almost always using LiveView to focus and compose my images. About 1/2 the time, the camera is positioned in such a way (e.g., directly overhead) that I can't easily see the back LCD. The swivel screen on my 60D is a lifesaver...

I love shooting video with my 60D, not so much with my 5DII, even though the 5DII has much better quality video. Why? Swivel screen on the 60D allows me to hold the camera in a more comfortable position and/or get odd angles.

I would hazard a guess that environmental sealing becomes a more tricky issue with an articulated LCD.
