I am indeed left eyed, but I can still use the touch screen for focus tracking on the GM5.
I hate it, but I forgive the GM5 because it's tiny.  
I'm a computer consultant in my day job, I use touch screens a lot, I'm using one now on this notepad (having switched from my phone so I can type this on a keyboard).  I'm perfectly used to and competent with them.
I don't like them, I try and pick kit that isn't dependant on them, and I especially loathe them on cameras (although they are even more annoying in cars - downright dangerous in fact).
Joystick please.

Means taking the camera from your eye. I dislike touch screens intensely.

You don't need to take your eye off the EVF to use the touch pad AF select.

If you are a left eye viewer the RH side of your face blocks the touch screen.
