    Not necessarily an Olympus only question but I am about to purchase either an E-PL5 or the OM-D EM-5 and am concerned about keeping the screen from getting all scratched up. What do people do? Screen protectors like on a smart phone or is there a protective case that covers the screen? I have never had a camera with such a large and exposed screen before - scratching my head on this one because I know what my phone screens look like after a few months!

    I use an Exim Pro protector on my cameras. They are specifically cut for each camera so they are a perfect fit.

    I bought the cheapest cell phone screen I could find and cut it roughly to size for my E-PL5.

    Ok - thanks, just wasn't sure if there was a better way. I don't really care if my cell phone gets a bit scratched (although I use a protective cover) and I wasn't sure if people were buying special cases or some other kit to keep the screen in good shape.
