    Hi folks

    Has anyone used a 3M Vikuiti Screen Protector on their E-P3 and had a similar experience to me?

    Whilst the screen protection seems fine, it also seems to reneder the touchscreen unsuable. I imagine this is because a) it's quite thick and b) it seems to attach via 'static' rather than adhesion.

    I'm not particularly fussed by not being able to use the touchscreen, but I was a little more concerned that it might damage the touchscreen itself because of the way it adheres to the screen. Or are my fears unfounded?

    I've taken the screen protector off for the time being and the touchscreen works OK, but over the long term I'm not 100% sure I should keep it on.

    So if you were in the market for a screen protector, you may want to re-consider the 3M one if you want to be able to use the touchscreen.
