I got a message back saying they don't do 71x49mm - the one I have is the best matched size for the K3 and do I want to return?
I said I won't return, because postage costs from Australia are too high. Give them their due, they do actually answer emails / ebay messages.

If you can manage to position it exactly with a 1mm gap on the left and right sides, it would look OK.
The one that I got that finally fit is 70x49mm.

So, I've received the ACMAXX screen protector and it is the same size as yours: 70 x 49 mm.
I just "eyeballed" it (placed it over the screen with the sheath still on) for size over the rear LCD ... it seems a bit small ?
Not sure how much area it is supposed to cover.
I will install later when back from work and see what happens.

The K-3 is problematic in that the LCD is inset rather than flush with the back. The protector is supposed to sit down within the LCD frame. Sideways centering is a little difficult, but once set, should be watertight.

So, I installed the screen protector (ACMAXX) and it was apparently the right size but I think I goofed trying to centre it properly as you can see in the picture below ( you have to click on it to see it as a "shared" image).
I hope this will not cause stuff to leak inside and between the screen protector and the LCD itself !!
The smaller top LCD protector seems to be fitting correctly.

Let me know if the link works.
