From watching the video release, the touch screen seams perfect for reviewing, and thats mostly what I would want out of it. Maybe having your favourite settings prefixed in a quick one touch to switch inbetween, but it should be able to be 'locked or disabled' during shooting.

As for the 'Vari-angle' screens as Don Haines said for when the camera is attached to a telescope, or when your wearing expensive threads and kneeling or getting down to ground level is not possible! It's all about the image, haha!

In the meantime, I guess ill have to stick with my Android phone and DSLR Controller APP. Which works great! DSLR Controller - Android + Canon EOS - LiveView

I definitely do not want to see a touch screen on the pro level bodies.  I am a fan of physical buttons, it is just one more thing that can cause issues with the camera over time, in terms of not being responsive.  I have bigger hands and do not want to be pressing the wrong buttons and going back and forth betwen menus when I don't have to.  As well, If I am trying to look at the images I have shot, I do not want fingerprints all over my viewing area.

Don't you think it's going to be difficult introducing touch screens to pro bodies since there is a considerable layer of reinforced glass on the LCD? Plastic-y Rebel LCDs are ideal for touch-screens though.

I take it you've never held an iPhone in your hand?

To A3X,

I also use tethered shooting....a wonderful tool! Did you know that you can get 50 foot long USB2 cables with active repeaters that will allow you to be tethered quite a ways away? How long before we have a wireless connection from the camera to an Ipad? That would be the mother of all vari-angle touch screens!

Personally I dislike touch screens - my fingers are too big - on my phone using the soft keypad is hit and miss as my finger covers 4 numbers at a time.

Touch screens on pro level bodies? It's probably inevitable but just so long as they are there as an option. Properly located buttons & joysticks that fall naturally to hand without taking your eyes off the action are a must...at least until instant, perfect voice control takes the stage.

And that would want to be a whole lot better than Siri. Can you imagine it? "Siri, focus on the eyes...no, not those eyes, the other ones...hey that's a nose...oh forget it...Siri, switch to full manual...no not the user-guide manual...SIRI behave !!!!  (coming this century)

There's a place for touch-screen for something like Q or Info, but please, not for the menus. And no Siri.
