Protect The LCD?

My X100 should be here soon. I was wondering if some of you slapped on some sort of LCD protector? I think Panasonic's LCDs are pretty tough. I have several Pana cameras and no obvious scratch. Is the LCD of the Fuji similar in user's opinions?

Thanx--Bill

Re: Protect The LCD?

I think the glass protector screens are a very inexpensive way to preserve ANY camera. I love the first day of a fresh camera and put a protector on the LCD almost immediately. Why not?

Best of luck with your X100!

Re: Protect The LCD?

I agree with Tim's suggestion. I have them on all of my Sony DSLR's and amazingly they don't seem to scratch or mark at all!

Re: Protect The LCD?

I put the Vikuiti screen protector on mine...perfect fit. There is one out specifically for X100. protectionfilms24.com They are located in Germany, but have very speedy shipping.
As soon as Giottos comes out with a glass protector specifically for X100, I will switch to the glass. Put the glass on once and you are done.

Re: Protect The LCD?

The first thing I do is put on a screen protector. Why risk have a $1200 camera marred by a scratched screen. I use the Screen Patronus one. It is $8.50 for a package of three. I had some left over from either the GXR, NEX-5 or G1, not sure which but they were a perfect fit.
