Does the Sony A7 come with a screen protector installed on rear LCD?
6 months ago

I bought the PCK-LM16 screen protector for the Sony A7 but now that I look at the back of the LCD, it almost looks like it already has a screen protector in place. I don't want to mess it up by trying to peel off what might be part of the original display. I'll go ahead and put the PCK-LM16 on top but I wanted to ask if anyone else ran into the same thing and knew for certain.

This is what the rear of my Sony A7 looks like right now:

Mine didn't. I don't think yours does but it's hard to tell 100%.

Okay, it just looks a little like a protector in the corners. That isn't my actual photo (tried to edit but ran past the edit time limit) but my camera does look like that.

Thanks! I'll go ahead and stick on the protector and be happy.

No, it didn't as of 6 months ago.

However, it doesn't hurt to add one yourself.

My LCD got scratched pretty badly on a recent trip a couple of weeks ago, and just cracked a couple of days ago from packing it too tightly in a camera bag.

You can never be too careful.

Never liked heavy plastic screen protectors
In reply to Cymen Vig, 6 months ago

Thick screen protectors (like Nikon had/has for the DSLR's) or even thick film are not great.  They scratch easily and have to be replaced and they prevent (if you use them) touch screen function.  Thin films  that are cheap and easily replaced and work better.  When they wear, you can just peel them off and replace them and excepting hard impact, they work as well to protect against scratches as a hard plastic or thick one.

No it doesn't and the PCK-LM16 works very well. It's easy to add and move around a bit after you have placed it slightly out of line!
