Best way to protect LCD screen?

When I used to use Canon DSLR's, I slapped a Giottos schott-glass LCD protection screen on them right out of the box. Alas, Goittos doesn't appear to provide their product for the K5, maybe because the K5's LCD screen is plastic? So, what is everybody using to protect their LCD screens? Thanks.

A generic cell phone screen protector that you can cut yourself should do the trick- but personally, I don't even use a screen protector as chances are that if I do happen to drop the camera, the protector won't do much good anyway!

These are the best and you get one for both screens on the K-5 Pentax.

I mostly just want to prevent the accumulation of scratches from rubbing against shirt buttons, ink pens, zippers, etc. while the K5 is on the strap around my neck. It bounces around a bit when hiking, kayaking and motorcycling.

Thanks -- looks good. And cheaper than the $30+ Giottos glass screens I used to buy for my Canons.

ACMAXX is the best, it comes with two polycarbonate slabs, one for the top lcd and one for the back lcd.

I use the ACMAXX protectors also and they are easy to put on and do a good job of protecting my screens.
