    I literally just got my 6D. I figured while the battery was charging, I'd have a look around for a screen protector. I can't seem to find anything and I found a post on another forum suggesting one is not needed. Any ideas if this is true? Perhaps because it's plastic and not glass?

    if you are not careful, you can scratch it. Up to you if you want to protect it or not. You can buy those film you put on smart phone screen. They sell the universal ones where you can cut your self to fit.

    That's what I was thinking, too. I just can't believe there aren't really any available yet...

    6D has an unusual LCD size of 3.2inch, slightly bigger than the standard 3inch. Perhaps that is why it's still to early to be able to buy this size screen protector.

    Question: Why did you buy 6D instaed of D600? I preferred the Nikon because of the specs but ended up buying 6D because it is lighter, and because of that lens - 24mm f2.8 IS USM - a quite bright lens with image stabilization equivalent to 4 stops. This combo is $1,000 less than the Nikon D600 + 24mm f1.4. Also got the pancake 40mm f2.8. This should be a very fun lens to use!!!

    This must be a 3 inch screen. The Canon 6D has a 3.2 inch screen

    I bought the 6D partly because I have several Canon lenses already. However, the MAIN reason is because of its wonderful high ISO capabilities which will be very useful for nightscapes if the skies ever decide to clear up...

    My 5D3 was a week old before I put on a Vello slide-on screen protector. 3 days later, I succeeded in putting a 2" diagonal scratch on it that resists easy removal.

    I chose the Vello to get a an 'eyecup extender' which doesn't exist for a 5D3 (THANKS, Canon!...the others don't fit the larger viewfinder). Otherwise I would have bought a 'stick on' protector, and probably may still do so...plus an extender. Even if I replace the slide-on protector, $24 is minor expense compared to replacing the LCD.

    Just got my 6D as well. It is strange how a lot of third party vendors do not have after market products ready. I mean the camera has been available for demo for along time. Perhaps vendors hedge their bets to see how popular a new camera will be.

    I am waiting for Vello to put out their 6D LCD Protector Screen. I ordered the one they have for the 7D hoping that it would fit, but as others have mentioned the 6D's screen is actually a 3.2", although Canon lists it as a 3". Ideally I will wait for the Snap-On version as it has eye-piece protection as well:

    I put a universal screen protector on my 6D as soon as it came out the box, its similar to a smartphone protector.

    Another thing to consider is that im a mechanical engineer and work with very sharp and hard machine parts all day and have never damaged my samsung s2 which does not have a screen protector, just be carefull!

    Yup. I put one of those on for the meantime as well. Not as cool, but does the job! ;-)

    Why would you need a protector? Is it a touch screen or just a really pointy nose?
