Chris, Maybe so. But I also think that a GGS or some other kind of quality screen cover should be included in a 850.00 plus camera purchase. My reasoning for that one complaint was that if someone else was using the camera and didn't know about the LCD screen not being able to close properly with a screen protector on, they could try closing it forcibly and break the mount.
And as far as not needing a screen protector if you can put the LCD face into the camera... you still have to have the LCD exposed once in a while for setting the camera to do what you want done. You would and will still get it scratched up over time.
For now though, I guess a person can use those thin film LCD protectors until someone like GGS or ACMAXX comes out with one thinner to fit.
Nikon should have at least made one of those plastic covers that they put on the D90 and D300 and others IMHO.
But like I said... that was the only thing I can think of so far that I didn't like about the camera as far as it being a consumer upgrade from the d40/d60 line.

I went back today and played around some more with it. High ISO range is really impressive on an 8X10 print. But I'm not ready to give up my D300 just yet.

Update...
I had just gotten off the phone with a Nikon Tech Support Representative about another question on a different body. While on the phone with her, I asked about the screen protection for this LCD and she said that Nikon was looking into the production of one, but nothing official yet.
Another thing is that you will have to update to Capture NX2 from Capture NX to edit NEF files from this camera.
