It still doesn't answer my question if it is removable. I have no idea what "optical elastic material" is, but it sounds pretty permanent.

Clear sticky adhesive film at a guess....probably not that permanent.

I just removed an LCD cover (with heat). Used my suction cup from my Garmin car GPS. That suction cup is solid!

Any other places to buy the replacement glass + tape other than the OP? I remember some people buying it for cheaper...

I just bought a replacement TFT screen for my 50D directly from Canon Parts, (866) 481-2569. Total cost including tape, tax, and shipping was about $27, $8 less than from USCamera and a bit less than the prices i saw on eBay.

Thanks to pman67 for providing the contact info noted above.

I also just bought it from the same number above for my 5D Mark II. Cost was-
$24.11 (Screen) + $1.52 (Tape) + $6 (Shipping for US) + Tax = $34.08

I had bought one from eBay but it was not OEM as advertised. The font for the Canon logo was a different size than the genuine part by a small degree, but I'm a perfectionist so I wanted the real deal. The price was $17.99 and the power seller came from Chicago, IL. I don't think I'm allowed to state the person's name or not so I won't. If you want more info you can always PM me!

Suggestion - if the TFT tape is provided separately, you might want to order two of them, as the part is about $1.50 from Canon and it isn't difficult to misapply the tape. I botched the first one and now have to wait a few more days and pay $6 shipping for the replacement.  :o

Going forwards, I think the 5DII is the last Canon DSLR to feature replaceble rear LCD protectors. The 60D, 7D and 5DIII all feature the LCD being directly sealed into the back of the camera shell. Future repairs mean a whole LCD replacement...which is going to be costly.

i did that before i saw your post :) figured the odds of me botching the 1st application are gonna be at least 50/50.

ok, somehow i managed to order parts for the 5D and not 5D2, but luckily called on the 30th day so i got a refund and bought the right parts.

getting the broken screen out was definitely harder than i expected, but putting the tape and new cover on was super easy.

Great article - hopefully one I'll never need to put into practice! :lol:

Slightly off topic, but would you or anyone else know how to change the distance scale window on my 16-35L MKII. Somehow it got cracked. The lens works fine but I find the crack a tad irritating especially as I don't know how it happened....
