Contrary to some prior releases, I have read very little from Nikon on the glass on the D800 (I did see the issue with fog reduction).

Is it the same, or as tough, as a D300?

I haven't had a LCD cover on the D300 for years, and it looks like new. Whatever it is made of is adequately tough for the way I use it without the cover.

I've been using the D800 that way as well, but would be reassured a bit if I knew it was similar quality glass. All I can find is "tempered" (which mostly means, I think, if I break it that it breaks into lots of pieces instead of one or two).

Does the little note from Nikon maybe mean it is not as tough? Or just that "of course all our glass is tough we don't need to say that"?

Has anyone heard anything?

PS. This is a bit like the arguement over protective filters -- I am not trying to talk anyone into taking theirs off. I was very happy with the D300 "naked" and just wondering if there is any reason not to think the D800 would be as good?
