Planning to get a X100V soon but doubt about the color. Does the X100V scratch easily?

I relatively recently bought the X100F which I suspect is the same kind of construction. I chose the "silver" version. I have not scratched mine yet but I should think it is quite scratchable as it is only a coating on some kind of plastic. I thought matte silver would be easier to patch than glossy black. I normally carry the camera in a plastic freezer bag (inside a bigger case, of course).

But maybe you meant the LCD? I bought and fitted a tempered glass protector screen. I always use protective filters on all my lenses (no arguments please, not interested!).

lol the older are magnesium aloy,the new V is aluminum,i never scratched any of my x100,but im quite carefull not to do so...
