    I removed mine and bought a stronger plastic cover (like a screen protector on an iPhone)

    leave it on ... most of the time you use your viewfinder to frame a shot, anyways, so the cover is only there to protect your screen for viewing .. once in a while I forget to take off my polarized sunglasses, and then that LCD screen looks weird - not sure if that is because of the protective screen on it or not .... but i'd leave the screen on to keep the camera screen from getting scratched ...

    I removed mine because it seemed to make it harder to see my shots. I might check out BF's suggestion

    You really should look into them, Bambi. A high quality product at an affordable price on amazon. A protector for both the back and top displays is included. When I say you'll forget they're even there, I'm serious. Using them on every thing I own that they offer a model for. Don't skimp and get one of the cheaper makes as the aren't Schott Glass. (unless I'm mistaken, B+W filters are made from Schott Glass, if that helps to make a difference to you)

    I put an aftermarket one on that is a bit more able to take the abuse/scratches. I don't look at the screen while I'm shooting so it doesn't make much difference to me, I just want to protect the screen. I don't find the display all that beneficial during daylight hours. I just took a look and it certainly looks like it's been doing the job as it's in pretty bad shape.

    The ones I'm using are so cheap I always order two sets. I pulled out the extra set that was ordered for my old D-90 and found that the top display is a perfect fit on my F100. Way cool.
