The 500N had a digital screen for checking settings. Looking back it seems odd now that you have this part digitalisation in a film camera. A top down of the EOS 500N.

LCD screens on the top of camera have been common place for a good while and were the logical way of presenting info when traditional shutter speed dials and aperture dials were replaced with command dials. Today they tend to be one of the factors that distinguish a pro/enthusiast body from an entry level one as long time photographers are so used to them being there they feel the need to have them. 

If I still had a DSLR I'd probably still want one as my Nikon D300s had one and I used it all the time even though I could configure the rear LCD to display info. That said my Pentax K30 didn't have a top screen but I got used to reading the rear screen to the extent I'm 50:50 whether they are vital. My Fuji however goes back to the traditional dials with numbers on them that you can read without needing a screen and without needing the camera to be switched on - it was one of THE major factors in me choosing it over a whole raft of other systems.
