I beg to differ. Canon has gone to a glass LCD cover on the 5D III. There is no need for an LCD protector on this camera.

okay so if i scratch my glass LCD cover just for the sole sake of whatever you're saying, i'm fine right. :rolleyes:

Pretty darn hard to scratch it. Maybe if you took a knife blade to it? On the other hand if you add an unnecessary piece of glass to the 5D III you are going to reduce the anti-reflective property that Canon has developed so we can see the LCD in sunlight. But hey it's your camera - go for it!

Perhaps read through the rest of the discourse and you will see my reply on #31. ;)

personally i like my gear to look banged up. Shows I put function over use. Shows I also use the hell out of it. Used protectors before but they just wash out the image. If it gets scratched, so be it. Won't stop me from doing my job.

6 days hiking in the Glacier NP. Taking my 7D in and out of backpack, laying on rocks, rain and other circumstances and not one scratch on the LCD.

You're wrong on both points. I have seen a 5D3 with scratches already and the person didn't "take a knife" to it. It's not scratch proof, it's only resistant.

As an owner of a GGS, there is absolutely zero change in the reflective properties when it is installed. In direct sunlight my screen looks exactly the same with or without the GGS layer.

GGS has a 3rd generation protector that doesn't adhere to the LCD screen.

I just came across these. I would really not mind if my protector is not removable. Is there any other benefit to getting the 3rd Gen? Also, it does not come with the top lcd protector...

Found a nice review that answered few of my questions:
