This post about the EVF differentiating a "camera" from a cell phone got me thinking. If Canon wants to "woo" the new market of cellphone users into their R FF family, these are the very people who are used to only using the *entire camera-back* touch-screen in daylight or any other light.
So why don't you just "Give them a cell-phone back screen" and give them what they want. Make it look (& be as bright) as a cellphone, and *easily* interact with them like a cellphone. To them you just have added a R mount FF sensor & lens on it to take stunning pictures.
And, in the near future you could also offer an upscale(much higher price) version of this that would actually "function as a cell-phone"! Now they really have what they want!
Heck, if you have a entire-back touch-menu LCD that's as easy to use as cellphone users have come to expect, then I'd be interested in buying it! [..]
