    How about posting some nice detailed shots of how the options look? I'm a big fan of the rigid films but assume the ones available aren't die-cut or extend past the buttons and don't love the idea of the adhesive glass options. My epm1 is my only body running around naked and bare, so I'd like to find a good solution too.

    Epsilon,

    This is probably no good if you're outside the UK, but I recently bought an E-PM1 then an ExperShield screen protector. They listed them by camera make/model, but didn't have the Olympus E-PM1, so I bought their one for a Panasonic DMC-LX3 as it has the same size 3" screen. Seems to work fine so far.

    Screen Protector - Expertshield

    Cost was 6.44 UK pounds including postage.

    I use a Zagg InvisibleShield - their general, cut-your-own-size 3-pack option.

    I seen the cheaper ones. they only protect the screen from scratches. I use ACMAXX on my EPL1. So I am buying the ACMAXX for my EPM1 as well.

    The Vikuiti ARMR200 is a 3M product and looks pretty strong, I paid £7.65 with free shipping (from Germany I think), should arrive in about a week. Maybe not a strong as a hard glass protector but as mentioned they aren't available for the E-PM1. I really only want something to protect from scratches and finger marks, my cameras are always very well protected in bags and cases when not in use.

    These work and are not expensive.

    Screenpatronus has protectors cut for all kinds of cameras and models. I've used them on many cameras and they're sized accurately, easy to apply, clear and not as thin as cheap ones. About 12 bucks for a set of three. For some dslr's they even give you one for the lcd on top. You find them online. Here's one on my E-PL2.

    Yes it does and it doesn't obstruct the buttons at all (which was my first concern). It is actually a PERFECT fit and very easy to put on. It's got a bit of thickness and rigidity to it, and it does cut glare down a bit so all-in-all I'm happy with it. BTW it winged it's way from Germany in only a couple of days!

    This is exactly what I've been looking for. I hated the idea of a protector that just went part way across the screen. Thanks for sharing. I'm so glad I chimed in about sharing photos on this.
