    Three times is a charm with this item. And what I mean bythat is I had to put it on the camera three different timebefore it was actually on correctly. It is very hard to getit directly where it is supposed to be and if you need toget it back off, you need to use a blow dryer for 30 secondsto get it off the camera (the adhesive is very strong which is good, but only when you never want to get it offagain). Otherwise this is a great product. It is made outof glass and it does what it says its going to do. Helpsreally well with the glare and helps to view the picture onthe lcd better in the daylight. Worth the price.

    Problems Encountered: Getting it on the lcd screen correctly. If you need to getthe screen off, you should go to giotto website.

    Items I Recommend: Blow dryer

    Be very careful. This is a great protector at first glance, BUT it is glass, so if it breaks, it could scratch the LCD or cut you. Mine broke somehow inside my bad and when I pulled it out I nearly cut myself. I'm not sure how it broke considering I never dropped it, but it did.

    If you want this protector, I advise at least putting a film underneath to help prevent scratching should it break on you. Otherwise, I'd recommend a plastic cover which I now have.

      Comments about Giottos Aegis Professional M-C Schott Glass LCD Screen Protector for Leica M8 / M9:

      The Schott Glass LCD protector for the M9/M-M/M-E should be a mandatory accessory. It provides a clear, solid, LCD protector, and is light years ahead of cheap, flimsy film protectors. A definite must-have accessory!

            I didn't remove all the film from the adhesive. So, I tried to adhere it a second time to no avail. It fell off my M Monochrom. I had toorder a new one. It seems that you only get one chance to get this protector on your camera. Proceed with caution.

              But it's hard to put it into the right place.

                  If you don't have the Sapphire screen upgrade, you need this to protect your M8 or M9 screen. Much more economical.

                        There is a neat template that slides out of the package to test that you have the right size.

                        This is the third one of the very same screen protector I have purchased for the same camera screen. I do not know if I did not have these screen protectors the screen would have been broken instead of the protector, however, since I have once again purchased another protector it is a good assumption that I believe my camera's screen is better protected with one of these protectors rather than not protected.

                          Nice product at first, but it's sort of like the old saying "no good deed goes unpunished." I purchased this optional LCD protector and it ended up being easily broken. In the delicate process of removing the glass broken in two corners, I damaged a LCD that I presume would never have been damaged in the first place.

                          Comments about Giottos Aegis Professional M-C Schott Glass LCD Screen Protector for Leica M8 / M9:

                          I put the Giottos screen protector on my M9 as soon as I bought the camera. The M9's LCD quality is pretty low res, so I was glad to find out that the protector did not make it worse. If anything, it eliminated some glare. It also provided important protection against scrapes and bumps.
                          That leads me to mention that the protector screen is a little delicate. It will break if it takes a bump, so do not be surprised if it does. Mine cracked in my camera bag when it was forced against a spare lens. But it was an inexpensive fix to buy a replacement Giottos protector, and it likely saved my LCD from a similar fate.

                            A relatively cheap answer to the M9 plastic back screen. Only problem is mine cracked within a little over a year. No worries though--it's cheap enough that you peel it off, get a new one and move on.

                              this fixes the "i'll never understand why leica didn't put a scratch resistant screen on a $6500 camera" problem.

                              clear image, no scratches.

                                Comments about Giottos Aegis Professional M-C Schott Glass LCD Screen Protector for Leica M8 / M9:

                                I already use the 3" on my Canon 1Ds and am very pleased with the clarity and protection it provides. The 2.5" is for my Leica M9 and it fits and adheres to wonderfully. This is primarily for protection (which it does a fabulous job on) since the LCD image quality on the Leica's are lousy, to say the least.

                                      This was simple and outstanding. Simple to apply and outstanding in it's virtual invisibility. Can't tell that it is present yet you have the awareness that the display has a "glass cover" that is protecting it from the usual abuse. Highly recommend it and would purchase it again. Much better than the plastic covers that I have seen.

                                            It suppose to protect the LCD of my 7k$ Leica, but it was broken one week after i put it as i hit the camera by mistake with my ring!!

                                            I removed the broken glass carefully as it may easily scratch your plastic M9 LCD screen.

                                            I wonder why they have chosen glass as protection material!! if it's plastic like Nikon's, it'll be way better and reliable ..

                                              I bought a used M8 which came with the screen protector. During travels I found a big crack on it one day so I don't know what would have happened without it ... most likely destroyed the screen. I ordered a new one and it was easy to get the broken one off and the new one on. The price is fairly reasonable too.

                                                This is easy to apply to the LCD screen of a digital camera. I have learned from experience that it does its job. It cracked from an impact, but my camera's LCD is unharmed.
