Make no mistake, I certainly enjoy a tilt LCD, and think its really indispensable for landscape type work. Its one of those things that you don't even realize how great it is until you try it and find you can comfortably stand there and compose a scene without a sore back, or getting dirty on the ground for low angle shots etc. That said though, on a camera like the RX1, I personally can't say I'd miss it all that much, simply because I can't see myself using the RX1 from a tripod or doing lots of low angle shooting with it.
EVF, yes, as I think its a camera that lends itself to eye level shooting, but a landscape tool..... I don't know
I suppose one way of looking at it is that if you've got the money to buy such a camera, you've probably already got, (or can otherwise) afford other tools for landscape work etc, say a NEX7 or something like that, to give not only the tilt screen, but a variety of focal lengths etc.
RX1 just doesn't seem like its going to be, nor meant to be, a general purpose photo tool.
Its not a camera you sell all your other gear for, because LCD or not, its just rather limited in what it is, and what it can do.
Its like a Mazda Miata, fun little car to take out on the weekend (and darn fast around the SCCA auto cross course!) but you can't expect it to also haul groceries, take the kids to school etc.
Its, excuse the generalization, a rich mans toy, just like the RX1.
