Nope, my K5 - with the fast liveview AF it makes for a very good combo.

Received the replacement today - brand new in the packaging, forwarded directly from their manufacturer in China. This one came with an extra adhesive strip set, kind of nice. Definitely happy with their response time and service!

Glad to here it. Mine came with extra tape as well. Still haven't had the time to
Put it on yet. Probably get to it this weekend. Was the old one easy to remove?

Not really - well, it came off easily enough but the sticky tape stayed on my screen protector - probably why they are sending them with extra tape now. The tape was easy enough to roll off and didn't leave any residue. I guess the video of them slowly peeling the whole thing off on their website is probably with newly applied tape, mine had been on for a month and a half, and was probably alittle dried, causing it to just separate from the flipbac.

Has the new one shown any signs of becoming loose? I'm just wondering how many times they are willing to replace it?

It hasn't loosed itself yet from the package, and when it does I am not sure of the next time it'll get a gauntlet like our 2 week anniversary trip to Italy!

Well, I finally got around to putting my flipbac on my K7, and find it invaluable. I have no issues at all using it. Takes a little getting use to, but I settled in with it very fast. Probably the best screen protection out there. I really don't miss the nose prints on my LCD. For the price I'm very happy. I'm not one to look at the LCD everytime I take a shot, so I expect it to last a while. Sorry I waited so long to install it, which by the way fits perfectly. Looks very much like a real articulating screen on the back of my K7. Now I can hold the camera tight against my face with no worries of a smudged screen. Love it!

You can buy it from B/H photo. My K7 uses the 3" model.
