Okay maybe HATE is a bit strong but I have seen a number of posts with folks talking bout how they just don't like flip out LCDs but prefer the flip type on the E-PL3 and OMD. I spent some time playing with the flip up screen on the NEX 5n (nice camera BTW) and I don't get why that is necessarily better. I find the flip up screen to be more limiting than the flip out type found on the Panasonic Gh and GH series. I am able to get shots that there is no way I would even get close to getting with the a flip up screen (or using the rear LCD). Maybe its because I like odd angles and such but I find the flip out LCD to be a really flexible tool for getting interesting shots. I also think it makes it pretty easy to shoot stealthily from the hip (or with the camera in very awkward positions).
