Canon 5d4 vs 5d3 Rear LCD Screen Cover
1

I have a 5d4 with a cracked rear display screen that covers the LCD. It's a fairly easy repair to replace the LCD cover, but I'm unable to locate one even on eBay. However, I have come across a few 5d3 covers. Can anyone tell me if they are the same size and compatible/identical? Thanks.

Do you mean an add-on screen cover like this:

or do you mean the actual LCD screen itself?

If the latter, it is not an easy replacement. It is a touchscreen module and requires camera disassembly.

Thanks, John. I just got off the phone with Canon support and verified your reply. Spoke to Canon parts and apparently, Canon decided to integrate the outermost screen with the lcd panel, so the outer screen can be replaced as was possible with earlier versions. Sigh....
