I bought 10 of those and because the NEX-7 gets a very hard time, I"m on my 6th one at the moment. Surprising how tough the 7 is and it can take a beating, but those glass covers are excellent !!!!!

wHAT do you do to go thru so many screen protectors?   How do they "wear out'.   How do you remove the old one without damaging the LCD screen?

Mine lives in a large bag with a 500mm lens on it or the 800mm. That gets thrown in the car everyday. Dropped the NEX-7 twice so far and the rest have cracked just banging into things. The one I have on at the moment is cracked I'll leave it that way for awhile, I only use the EVF anyway.

To get them off you get a sharp blade under one corner and they generally just peel off. Sometimes they come off in two or three bits. As long as you are careful, its fine and the original screen is perfect. I'm an expert at it now days.

All the best and yep, my 7 gets a very hard time, all cameras have.
