    Heard the back cover with camera plastic thing gets scratched, is there a glass cover for this?

    Thanks for the link, sare.

    In my source, the "How to do it" is in German. I therefore had no link in my post :)

    Has anyone used one of these from the link above? Does it add any colour cast to the photos, or is it a neutral?

    I have seen three photos:
    with sapphire glass = without back cover
    with original back cover lens = a little bluish

    So we just order it from that website then use superglue to glue it back?

    Yes, the sapphire glass has exactly the same dimensions as the origin plastic cover.

    EDIT: Superglue? The glue should be elastic :)

    Before I set up an account on that web site, can anyone who has already purchased one let me know how much postage they charge? I.e. what will the total cost be?

    I hate e-commerce sites that don't make this clear until you have signed up!

    Ouch. So the postage is more than doubling the price! How can they justify €20 for shipping a tiny fragment of glass within the EU? I guess they are used to dealing with companies, who can easily write that sum off.

    That justifies (in my own mind, at least!) my cynicism of sites that don't make their shipping prices clear at the outset!

    It's "only" $27 for me in Canada. Which is still a rip off lol. Shipping should be just lettermail which is about $1 within N/A and internationally $2-3. Maybe I'll call them up and make the order.

    NO GO! Said only still $10

    Not sure if this is worth it lol, $30 almost for piece of glass that's smaller than my wedding ring.

    Might just polish it then put a screen protector on since I have 10 of those.

    Pity...

    "Shipping Price To Be Determined
    When you place your order, a sales representative will be notified and will contact you with final pricing, tax (if applicable), and shipping information."


    I'm in Belgium!
