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.

Let me join the ranks of those whose NEX 5N had the coating start to wear off after less than a year of very careful use.  I sent it to the Laredo, TX repair center, and got extremely fast and courteous service.  They received the camera on a Thursday and did the repair the very next day and shipped it right out that day, by Fed Ex.    I had had a screen protector on it, but the screen protector wasn't quite large enough and the coating was wearing off on the areas not covered by the protector.  I have now purchased a Sony "semi hard" screen protector (and a spare.)
