Default cover saves against marker light?

are you able to take a cover save against a marker light if you are 1) in a building . 2) behind a friend group of unit exemple a screen of troop guards in front of karskins ?

As far as I know, when you shoot a marker light you only roll to hit. If you hit you get to place a marker counter on the unit you hit. It's pretty clear on page 29 in the Tau codex. I can't see how it's possible to get a coversave against a markerlight. It doesn't deal wounds.

That's my opinion... Anyone else?

I think the general consensus is that markerlights don't cause wounds and hence no saves can be taken against them.

Indeed cover save is granted only after a wound is cause. Markerlight do not cause wound so doesn't grant a cover save. And on top of that you can reduce the cover save to nothing. Ain't life great!!!
