I'm an LCD convert. When I got my first digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix 775 in about 2002, I loved the little screen on the back. I've had two cameras with viewfinders since then but still prefer an LCD. Great for plant and flower pics, especially with an articulated screen, and lovely on a tripod. Yes, strong sunlight can make it awkward at times but I'm still quite content with no viewfinder. My next camera, later this year, will very likely be the new Olympus EP-7. Takes all sorts, as they say.

Same here, rear screen all the way. If a camera has an EVF I simply ignore it. And that after something like 40 years or so of using an OVF.

Just because someone prefers or is comfortable using the LCD in no way suggests it's really the best way to take a photograph. When I bought an RX100 back in 2012 I was forced to use the LCD and became comfortable with it. Now that I replaced it with an RX100vii with its pop-up EVF I rarely use the LCD anymore. An EVF/OVF just a far better way to use a camera because you can hold the camera steadier, it's a more immersive experience and I can see details in the scene much better.
