    I was all set to purchase a new Nikon S9100 Point and Shoot until I noticed that the LCD screen had many scratches on the surface. It seems that the screen was sprayed with an anti-glare coating so it doesn't reflect light when used out-of-doors. The problem with that is the coating easily scratches off. In fact, my Canon Elph also had that anti-glare coating and it started peeling-off within several months of purchase. Why do manufacturers spray their screens? They must know that the coating comes off easily. If they want to make a screen resistant to glare, they should use OLED screens instead of LCDs. My question is which manufacturers spray the LCD screens with this anti-glare substance? I will avoid purchasing from these manufacturers. It seems that Panasonic Lumix is OK, but what about Sony, Samsung, etc.? Strange that other camera owners haven't noticed the "peeling" screens.

    I know what you mean, but if it`s a camera you really want, fit a screen protector to it.

    I don't think the peeling happens with all anti-glare coatings, only with those where the coating was improperly applied.

    I had bought and used screen protector on ebay from gearmaxx for my NIKON 1 J2. It has almost been 1 year and the screen is in perfect condition . Not sure if they have for your model or not -
