Is GX1 LCD same size as GX7 and/or GX8?

    I've done some searches but can find my exact answer...

    I'm wanting to purchase some new screen protectors for my Gx1 bodies, and can't find what I want, likely becuase the GX1 is now so old.

    Will someone with personal knowledge and/ or still owning a couple of these bodies please help?

    Online specs say the GX7 and GX1 both have 3" screens, but are they exactly the same size, so a screen protector for one will fit the other?

    Is the GX8 screen also the same exact size as the GX1?

    Many thanks!

    I believe they are the same size, but different aspect ratios. I will compare my GX1 to my GX85 (which has the same screen as GX7) tomorrow.

    Thanks. Yup, the aspect ratio surely matters if the screen protector is going to fit perfectly.

    Guess I should have asked-- what cameras have exactly the same size LCD as the GX1?

    Rear LCD Size for the DMC-G5 or DMC-GX1

    This leads me to believe the G5 screen is the same. I've used and loved the ProGuard screen protectors in the past, from Amazon, but they look to be no longer available...still digging.

    Great timing! Just got a GX1 myself, and I guess these little guys need protection. Will check out your links, thanks.

    As it turns out, the GX1 and the GX85 have LCDs that are identical in terms of size and aspect ratios. However, I suspect the screen protector for the GX85 will be much larger because its screen is covered with glass which is larger than the screen itself.
