Can someone reference a link to relative merits of Gorilla glass versus sapphire glass. I will also be happy to hear folks' opinions of relative merit of each.
Thanks in advance.

I cannot find much on this, but what glass is on the M-E? (I am thinking ordering one as a backup)

The cost of sapphire over Gorilla glass is roughly 5 times as expensive for the size of what is used in LCD covers and cell phones like the iPhone.
The bigger the piece of glass the more the cost of sapphire. Sapphire glass became most common in watch crystals.

The Gorilla Glass in LCD screen covers for cameras was released in 2012 by Schott AG. Schott has been a premier lens glass supplier for quite some time.

I'm happy with the sapphire screen of my M9P, but had no problems with the M8's plastic screen either.
