Touchscreen on the Olympus E-M1 III?

The rear monitor on the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III is touch sensitive. This feature is convenient for adjusting camera settings and reviewing images, and – just like a touchscreen on a smartphone – makes operations easy, quick, and intuitive. Commands can be entered by tapping, swiping, and sliding on the rear screen, instead of having to use dials and buttons on the camera body.

The LCD is flexibly attached to the body to allow for odd-angle shots.
