5D Mark III : Screen protector

I was of the opinion that the screen protector for 5D mark 3 is not necessary. It is like protecting the protector and if something happens to the original screen, it's replacement should be pretty easy and cheap.

But I guess I was wrong. After reading around discovered that 5d MK3 (and 7D) screens are fused to the body and replacing them in case of any damage is gonna be costly affair.

Okay, but I was really not interested to stick anything on the screen and then came across this novel solution. It is available under various names GGS, Vello and may be some other. But the principle is same. Just insert it like Eyecup and remove it if you don't need.

Here is  a short video review of GGS.

So what do our experts say?

Yes we do lose a bit of viewfinder view.. but...
