    Make that 2 now for me. I just took an instrument screwdriver to the screen of my old 7D just to see how hard/easy it was to damage. Just at the edge mind and it did take a wee bit of pressure to mark it.

    My hand did slipped and caused a bigger scratch than I'd intended but nothing that will interfere with the viewing. Don't use it nowadays anyhow. Stupid is as stupid does:D

    I have not scratched a screen yet either i use a soft microfiber to clean them from time to time on three cameras two Nikon one Panasonic but i also keep them always in the camera bag separated from anything that could scratch.I also go strapless no neck or shoulder or wrist straps of any kind.

    When I bought my Fuji X100T compact camera over 4 years ago and bought screen protector at same time. It has scratches and I have peace of mind.

    I apply a quality screen protector to all my digital cameras. Years ago you had to apply a sticky buffer between the screen and the protector. Went around the edges. Very tight seal, never had any particles intrude between the screen and protector. Most recently I purchased a protector for the screen on my Leica CL. Laser cut to size, just peel off the covering and apply the cover directly to the screen.

    Without getting the manual out I have a vague recollection that my canon with touch screen suggests not using a
    Screen protector as it could interfere with the touch screen

    Makes sense. Though I don't mind much as I don't use the touch feature. I ordered JJC protector.
