My K3 is now in Montana, and headed to my end of the State; delivery tomorrow!

Got the AC MAXX hard LCD protectors yesterday for both the main LCD, and one for the top LCD. These are really top quality, and look very nice on the cameras.

it's a bit tricky because the protector doesn't fit 100% on the K3 main LCD, so be very careful ^^

I'm aware of that, the description of the protector for the K3 said:

"K3 body is curve designed so main Lcd screen will be 1mm smaller each side than full screen area*
*This way protector can be sealed and keep dust/water out*"

Good god CSA, you're a bad as me. I usually check at least 3 times a day. I guess when you live someplace away from the bustling crowd, these things become more important.

These protectors are rigid, so would not bend. I'm assuming making this one just a bit less wide omits the area of the curve on the K3, therefore the protector will lay flat & seal completely.

If you don't experience the ice cream truck when you are young, it will become a psychological impediment your whole life. That just proves it. My dad never took me to the ice cream truck. I took my kids whenever I could. Of course that was maybe 10 times in their whole childhood, we lived out of town for the most part.

And the good thing is that if you spill ice cream on your K3, it'll only be the wasted ice cream you cry about... unless you drop it straight in the mirror box with the body cap off and no lens fitted, in which case weep, baby, weep, for your dead K3 - and console yourself with more ice cream.

My K3 will be safe, as I don't (can't) have ice cream!

Yeah, I'd shy away from any caffeine this morning.
