I will NEVER buy a camera with ANY touch controls again. They are just a terrible idea from every angle. Impossible to use with gloves on, dirty hands, smudges on your screen, hard to use in bright light, can't quickly locate a button without looking - HORRIBLE!!!!!
The reason companies like all touch is because it's cheaper for them to produce, less mechanical parts. Cheap bastards.
If anything the screens on these cameras need to be smaller to save on battery life. When I'm snapping cameras I hardly care about the screen, just a real quick preview is enough. The screens now are 2 times too large and makes the camera more prone to breaking. It's so easy to stick these large cameras screens in your pocket and break them.
Stop the insanity, bring back common sense and logic to product design. Who designs this crap and does no one get the memo?

So don't buy one with a touch screen. Problem solved.
