I think it would be neat if the top LCD was given touch capability and made customizable (just keep it a reflective LCD with low resolution to maintain low power consumption).
You could keep the AWB, AF and ISO buttons, but make the display do whatever you want. Like, an ISO slider, for example.

Even a top end camera which is optimised for speed of use without taking your eye away from the viewfinder can benefit from a touchscreen in certain situations - as long as it compliments the buttons, not replace them.

Certain features such as zooming in or scrolling around an image, or selecting the focus area in live view can be much quicker with a touch screen than button based systems - presuming it's warm enough to not wear gloves.

If it's implemented well, a touch screen can be an asset to the 1 series.

why not make this whole things button/dial-free?

Because knowing the position of physical buttons / dials makes it quicker to make changes whilst actually shooting.

However I briefly had a 650D and the touch screen did work very well. Would I prefer only touch screen ? No way !

( just seen the other replies: quite right !)

Had the Canon M for 3 months before one of my Lads pointed out it had a touch screen, Technology seems wasted on me.

But I love my 14fps on the 1Dx.

I handle my cameras outdoor in below freezing temp, several months of the year. A touch screen would be a real PITA for that use. I would rather vote for bigger buttons.

But if, as someone earlier in the thread pointed out, we could customize it, get efficient sliders and limit the functions to those we use, it could be a nice add-on feature. A bigger screen would defenitely be most welcome, to compensate for my deteriorating eyesight ;)

Hmmmm  :-\ ... I'm happy with my CamRanger which allows me to view/shoot images on dozens of screen sizes ... besides, Canon, most likely, will charge a bomb for this camera.
yeah well not everyone likes to carry another pice of gear around...
That's why I said "I'm happy" ... not everyone ::) others don't have to be happy with what I'm happy with or carry ::)
a 1 models expensive? a thing never heard of.

well i just wonder what does your camranger has to do with canon enhancing the display? :)
it´s fine that you are happy with your camranger. but how does that affect others?

i heard a slightly negativ tone in your post, maybe im wrong, but to me it sounded like "pfhh... that´s not needed.

and i was puzzled that when canon enhances features some are still searching for a hair in the soup.  :D

The larger screen could have something to do with the MF rumors...Phase One backs are navigable much like an iPhone.

I wasn't sure about a touch screen until I tried it on the 70D.  It's DEFINITELY useful especially if you are using Live View.  They'll never replace buttons.  It's much faster to change settings with them.  And try changing settings when it's bright out...  ;)

If Canon had a 5" monitor I could plug into a body and use to navigate menus with a touchscreen, I'd be interested.  A slightly bigger touchscreen on the back, right next to the buttons anyway?  Meh.

Personally, I'd like to see streaming tethering. Right now, I can tether my Surface Pro, with its full 1080p HD screen, to my 7D. Problem is, I have to take a shot first to see the result. I'd love it if I could stream live view through the USB cable to the Surface Pro, and control the camera from there. Would be like having a classic large format view camera, only better (i.e. no upside down composing or dealing with ground glass.)
