How in the world would/could Sony introduce their new RX100 3 without a smart touch screen? I just bought one and thought I could get along without it, but I think after using Oly, Panny's etc with the up to date touch screens, I treat the RX100 3 like I do my old cameras or a ex-wife.. I don't even feel like using the RX100 3 without the touch screen. I put it away.. Sony missed the boat here.. mine is for sale here on the for sale section.. I think for a pocket camera that is easy to use, smaller and more up to date... the Canon S120 has it beat.. of course not IQ but somewhat close...... the Sony images didn't knock my socks off.. I would never buy another camera without touch screen technology.. Oh well, live and learn..
