Screen protector for E-M5

Anyone know of a hardened glass screen protector for an E-M5? Can't find one anywhere.

Thanks

David

Would it work with a touch screen; they normally have an air gap between the glass and the screen.

No it wouldn't but the touch screen is of no use to me at all so it is switched off.

Re: Screen protector for E-M5

I bought a cgs optical glass protector on ebay. The one meant for a Canon 5D mk 3.
Works a treat! Yes YOU CAN use the touch screen!

Re: Screen protector for E-M5

Hi James,
I have used these many times on various cameras.

Leaves a small margin around the edge but top quality.

One tip. If ever yo remove one use dental floss or similar. Saves breaking the glass!

Terry. This forum wont allow me to post a the link yet as I only have one post?

just go on ebay and type GGS screen protector for Canon 5D mk 3.

Re: Screen protector for E-M5

I'm guessing a screen protector protects the screen on the back of a camera so why does it need protecting?

So for me there's no point to them.
