I see a lot of refernces and endorsements of the Marshall 7" V-LCD70XHB-3GSDI, but no discussion of the more versatile and more capable Marshall 7" V-LCD70MD-3G

The V-LCD70MD has higher resolution, lemo power jack, both SDI and HDMI input/output, lighter weight -- plus all the features of the other (800 nit brightness, flip, etc...). And it costs a little less.

Is there any reason this model is not used as much on Steadicam?

800 Nits that's why, that's not bright enough for outdoor use. I've also never really been a fan of the AR coatings that Marshall uses

It's a newer model and that's probably the main reason it's not widely adopted as an alternative to the 70XHB. No worse than the XHB, and all of the advantages that you mention. But shares with the XHB the big disadvantage Eric notes (though it's not impossible to use outdoors, particularly on a cloudy day, but it's a world of pain in the sunshine, which rules it out for high-end operators).

The only prosumer/mid-grade monitor that offers something approaching daylight visibility is the Marshall 6.5" transflective (which has its own shortcomings compared to high-end monitors like Cinetronic.)
