Is the NEX-6 LCD made of Corning's much-vaunted gorilla glass?

Absolutely not.  It is plastic.  I made a nasty mistake yesterday and put my NEX-7 on top of my brand new 10-18mm lens in a small camera bag with the LCD facing down.  I thought I was being so clever to fit it all into that small bag until I took the camera out a few hours later and found the hash marks from the focusing ring etched into the LCD.  Adding insult to injury I bought one of the GGC LCD protectors weeks ago but never installed it.  So let my woe be your warning!
