Is K-1 LCD screen same size & ratio as 645Z's?

I'm looking for LCD screen protectors for K-1, but 645Z's screen protectors are cheaper. So, I have this question. Hope they are interchangeable. Anyone knows?

I can’t answer your question but I have one for you. Most of the screen protectors I’ve seen are not terribly expensive. Why aren’t you asking what would be the best one to put on your $1700 camera rather than will this cheap one fit? Just saying.

Yes, they are the same size. The K-1 has a larger surrounding frame, but that's it.

Any screen protector that's big enough should work, IMO, since these screens generally all have the same aspect ratio.

In fairness, some really excellent screen protectors are very cheap indeed. The OP might already have one such example.

I've been using Vikuiti DQCT130 screen protectors on most of my cameras for years now. They're inexpensive, hard-wearing and easily removable with no residue...

Thanks all for the inputs. I don't normally use LCD protector on my cameras because I found using it normally compromise viewing experience. So, I tend to not use screen protector but, instead, use quality camera case and extra care. But I'm preparing for a trip that I know I may run into dusty environment and tight schedule. Therefore, I start to look for a screen protector as temporary protection. IMHO, these camera LCD screens are too good in viewing to use any cover to compromise viewing experience - LOL. Thanks Adam for the information on sizes!
