LCD Screen Protector for K-5

Apologize if this has been discussed somewhere else, but I could not find a thread for this topic.

I am looking for a Screen Protect for both of my K-5 screens...

Any recommendations?

Thanks

I just buy generic large size screen protectors and cut them to size.

But, to be honest, I had my K7 for a year and didn't even come close to scratching any glass on it.

I highly recommend the Acmaxx protectors. They fit perfectly and are very highly protective. You can get one off of ebay for ~$10.

Also got ACMAXX protectors on both my K-7 and K-5. They protect both displays and fit very nicely. The silver borders are not really my thing, but well, they do the job.

I like the GGS screen protectors you can get off Amazon. They're a glass adhesive and seem a lot more durable than the film protectors. Plus, they're only $5 or so.

I am happy with the Acmaxx protectors - the K-5 set provides you one for the rear LCD and one for the top screen as well. Once they are on, there is no noticeable deterioration in the image quality on the screen.

I also use the glass GGC protectors. I have them on both my K-5 and K-x.

i definitely like the glass ones and have been using GGS brand for my last 3 cameras with never an issue. recently amazon had 'em listed for $0.01 (a penny) plus shipping.

Yesterday I ordered CROCFOL (Crocfol Displayschutz Systeme GmbH (Displayschutzfolien für z.B. Handy Kamera PDA Camcorder)).
Actually, you buy a coupon (€ 14,99) for a pair of protector foils, and go to their website and fill in the coupon's code. Then select the kind of screen protector you need, it is custom made and mailed in about three days
I will see hou it looks when it arrives....

Another one for Acmaxx. When I got my camera back from CRIS, I noticed a scratch on it. If it wasn't there ... they would probably be replacing the screen. I just bought one for my new Lumix GF2.

The glass does scratch on the K-5. I luckily had mine replaced because of a seal issue, but when I got it back from Pentax I put a protector on there right away.
