    Hey guys, curious how easily the Canon 5D IV screen scratches? I've had an 80D for 4 years, but I can rotate in the display. Obviously not so with the 5D IV. I have a screen protector coming but want to use the camera at a baseball game and dirt/sand will be in the air.

    I got a new 5DSr a couple of years ago and scratched the screen in the first week or two of having it. I dunno how it happened either.

    I take the screen protectors off, since 2003. Never scratched a screen.

    Yes, all 11 of the dslr cameras that I have bought since 2001 have come with a factory Supplied screen protector.

    Unless it's cut perfectly to the screen, the 5D IV doesn't have one from factory

    I don't have one, never really worried about it either. But I do view cameras and lenses as tools, and tools get scratched from time to time. Unless you are really careless and get a big, deep scratch, it won't affect functionality.

    Canon saved 50 cents for you by not furnishing one!

    Hmmmmmmmmmm, none of the ones I've bought have, the most recent being the 5Dsr, the one I scratched.

    Mind you the fact it was rolling around in the boot (trunk) of my car with a dose of other loose crap might have something to do with how the damage was caused.:D:D
