The glass used by Canon for the screen is so astonishingly tough, the only people who would say you need protection are the manufacturers of the protection.

my giotto glass screen protector just cracked.  not sure that anything hit it.   i just looked at it one day  and it was broken.  I don't think i'll be buying another one if its just as easy to replace the screen.  I live 1.5 miles from the Irvine Canon service center so...

Don't use any on my current bodies (1DX, 5D3, T2i).  Used them on my previous ones (5D2, 40D, T1i).  I think the current bodies are more impervious to oils and fingerprints.  In case of a drop, I don't think these will hold up any better than the naked screen.

When my cameras are cleaned by canon they replace they protective skin on the LCD screen.  Though I get small scratches and Face oil on the screen, when I get them back from canon the LCD looks new

Hah! I missed that thread. It seems I have just been incredibly lucky. Forget everything I said on the subject. Buy protection...

It was replaceable separately when I shot with the 1Ds, overpriced clunker that it was...
10 minutes over the counter at CPS and no charge. Obviously if the damage goes deeper than just the LCD screen cover, then it's a different story.

Not the 5D MK III.  Up until it came along, the LCD cover was easily replaced, I replaced a few.  With the 5D MK III and likely all later models, the protective cover is bonded to the actual LCD, so the whole assembly must be replaced, which runs $300  or much more depending on who's fixing it.
 
If you are willing to dismantle your camera, you can but the new sandwich for less.

well...  i guess that i can say that i am cheaper than anyone else in this threat.  i bought xtreme guard film to cut it myself since i have seen that my friend bought one from germany and it was not cheap, but only good for large screen... the small one popped out right after he put it on.  mine stays on, nice and fit pretty well but have to say that i do not like it as the one that i bought it for my 7d (pre-cut from ebay).
