Considering that there is a lot of screen real estate to protect now that I've upgraded from a D50, I'm contemplating better screen protection (a much more durable solution than the plastic protector). There seem to be several different versions of the GGS protectors that would fit the D7000. Any thoughts as to which are most recommended?
-Adhesive based applied directly to screen -Clip-on D90 version w/o integrated viewfinder coverage -Clip-on D7000 version w/extension to cover viewfinder

I always had an GGS on my cameras. The one adhesive applied directly on the screen. It's just perfect, does not obstruct the view like the original screen protector does, it's like invisible. Easy to clean. I can't tell you how good the protection is, I never dropped the camera. Also, one thing, for some is important, for me does not matter at all: it will cover the "Nikon" writing you have on your LCD, and will show the GGS.
I use to buy it from ebay, but coming from China it will take a good two weeks, so for my D300 I got it from amazon, same price for me, I have the amazon prime, so I did not pay shipping. ________________ IOAN "... stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God" - Elihu My SmugMug Gallery
Well, I've tried both the GGS clip on and the stick on, and have to say that I much prefer the stick-on kind. I was never confident that the clip-on kind wouldn't just pop off, and definitely felt like it decreased visibility, or at the very least affected off-axis viewing.
The stick-on kind seemed to have zero effect on visibility.
Rocky, thanks for recommending and mentioning the Giottos model number. Mine arrived today and I am really impressed with the perfect fit on my D7000. Visibility is much better than the plastic Nikon BM-11.
