Screen protector recommendation for K-3 II

Curious about what screen protector you folks use on your K-3 cameras?

I used the same thing for my old K-3. No complaints, easy to install.

I highly recommend these! I have them on my K10D as well as my K3! They fit beautifully and are easy to install. They are a hard surface, not a film, so no bubbles to worry about. Wouldn't be without them!

I use the brand Vikuiti - made by 3M. Easy installation and you can't even tell it's there. If that is what you are after I'd check it out:

Vikuiti ADQC27 Screen Protector for Pentax K-3 II

They have scratch resistant, anti-reflective, fingerprint-free, and privacy versions.

ACMAXX, though I did have some problems with fit. The vendor was good enough to respond with several sizes, one of which worked. With any luck, they have got it figured out by now

As for performance, I have been using the protector for almost two years and it has just been in the last couple of weeks that I have noticed any significant scratches to the protector.

I bought the one that says "for K3", and it fit perfectly; so they have gotten the correct size now. This was last November.

I really like the thin silver border around the protectors, makes it look very nice!

I fitted ACMAXX "shields" to our K-5 and K-3 II the other day. I can't speak to how protective they are as I've not had any experience of bumping/bashing them (though it seems like it should do well), but they fit well and were quite easy to fit. I like that they also protect the top display.

Folks,

I understand that this is a slightly older thread... but looks like the ACMAXX product (currently) only carries a single rear LCD protector and does not include the top LCD protector. Can someone kindly give a link that carries BOTH the rear and the top LCD protectors for K-3 II?

Many Thanks!
