K-30 LCD Screen protection

While I am waiting for my new k-30 to arrive, I wanted to get a screen protector for it. (My k-x got scratched 2nd week of usage)

Ebay only shows very basic film protection , but I wanted to get a more robust glass one.

Does anyone know, if K-5 glass screen protector can be used on k-30. Will it fill well?

Thanks.

This is what you want:
ACMAXX 3.0" HARD LCD SCREEN ARMOR PROTECTOR Pentax K-30 K30 K30D D | eBay

I have one, and it fits perfectly. I used an Acmaxx on my K-r and it worked very well for 18 months so they are very durable, too.

I have the GGS brand for my K-X and it has been great. I think this would work for K-30 because it works for K-R. only $5

Amazon.com: GGS Optical Glass LCD Screen Protector 3 inches for Digital Cameras: Camera & Photo

but I don't know how the quality of this compares with the ACMAXX brand.

The K-r size protector for Acmaxx was too small for the K-30. I do not know if that would be the case with the GGS or not. Maybe someone has tried it already?

I have no idea. I know the K-30 protector by Acmaxx was made specially to fit the K-30.

I just got my K-30 today and same day received 6 cheap ebay screen protectors. They're good and at 2.35 for 6 I can't complain at all, being clear and a decent thickness. I've bought worse ones for 8 for one on other cameras. Search for
"6 x Invisible 3 Layer Shield Display Screen Protectors for Pentax K-30".
