Yes this happens with all NEX models to date (bar the NEX-6 and the NEX-5N maybe). In order to prevent it, you need to not rub the screen against anything--not even a fingernail or a camera bag. More practically, get a glass screen protector for it.

Yeah, it seems like it scratched very easily, on my Nex-5. On the bright side, once it's worn off, you'll at least have a consistent display again without splotchiness. Well, the coating really did work well to curb reflection/glare while it lasted.  I did add a stick-on screen protector, but removed it, and that helped to remove the coating as well!   Yikes.  It would have been ideal if I had Sony's clip-on protector, but I didn't know that existed, or maybe it didn't at first, when I first started getting scratches.  Of course, now I'm free to add a protector if I want.  But I guess what I'm getting at is don't use a stick-on LCD protector if you want to preserve the coating.
