    From what I understand they come with the higher end nikon cameras. I am a canon guy though so I dont know 100% for sure. I use an invisible sheild and it is wonderful, no distortion or lack of visibility at all.

    I'll second the invisible shield. I don't really like the clip on protectors like this. The invisible shield is great.

    Third. Have one on my D2x and it's muuuuch better than the supplied plastic cover.

    I don't think those clip on plastic ones come with the D40 or D40x due to the size of the screen. I didn't get one with my D40x.

    I'm pretty sure they come with the D80/D70's and upwards.

    Ah Well, just curious. Shieldzone seems to be expensive. I guess I'll just leave the camera as is and try to prevent it from touching anything.

    It's semi expensive for what you get yes. Mine was $12 but that included shipping.

    If you're feeling cheap, you can look into that plastic material they use to make invisible bumpers (paint chip protection) for cars. That's all this is. And all you'd have to do is cut it to a square shape. But last I checked, the cost of that was close enough to the invisible shield and I decided it wasn't worth my hassle.

    Screen protector worth it

    It really is worth it to buy a screen protector, especially since you have gotten into Nikon at the bottom end of their line (like I did with my D50) and will want to probably invest in a higher end camera in the future. Not having the protector would really hurt your resale chances later...

    Also note invisible shield gives you lifetime warranty so if you scratch it or whatnot they replace it for free.

    It being the invisible shield, not the camera I believe. I mean I know they will replace the shield for you, but I'm not sure what they do if your camera is damaged.
