ACMAXX LCD Screen Protectors are different for K-5II models

I couldn't find the information on their website so I emailed ACMAXX (several times) and got an answer.

The LCS protectors for the K-5II & IIs are not the same as the ones for the K-5 Original. They provided a link in the reply to an eBay sale.

No, but given that the LCD screens on the back of the II & IIs are different than the K-5 Original it made sense to me that the protectors might be different, which is why I asked them.

Hi,

I'm curious -

Their website says:

"This is a hard frame type of protector. Very easy to apply and it can be removed.
It snap around the LCD and it will NOT touch the LCD screen
It can be applied and detach at any time."


ACMAXX LCD ARMOR Features

So it sounds like it does not use adhesive, but snaps into place.

If you get one, I'd love to hear your impressions of it.

Thanks !!

I'd like something like this for my K-5 IIs but I'm concerned about reflections. I want to retain the feature of the air gap-less screen while protecting the screen. If it doesn't actually stick to the screen, it creates an air gap, which negates the screen's standout feature.

I've had several of them - K-5, K-01, & Q. They do adhere but to the frame not the LCD. They're solid and seem to do their job protecting the screen. They're around $15 for the two. There are several threads on them around the forum.
