Anybody have experience with this? Specifically with a 5D Mark II. Does the LCD screen simply have a glass cover over it which can be easily replaced? Or is the glass portion actually attached to the LCD screen which would require you to replace the entire LCD display in order to get rid of scratches on the LCD's exterior.

Reason I am asking is because I am considering buying a cheap 5D II with a REALLY scratched up screen (the owner thought it would be a good idea to use rubbing compound on the screen to remove a few small scratches, smart right?)

Yes, to answer your question, just the glass cover can be replaced.


6D, 5D, 7D, 50D, 40D, Xsi, PENTAX mx-1, Sony a6000, Sony a3000 too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:
