Yes, I already did that. Our cats were batting around something on the kitchen floor and  when investigated (always a good idea when cats are involved),  it turned out to be the shoe cover of my V1! I don't even remember it falling off. Nikon should fix this, and fire the engineer responsible for it's design as well.

on the shoe cover i'm going to see if i can take it apart, to see if i can find a solution.

i'v e noticed turning that screw is making it loose so maybe i find a solution it is doing something so it might be solvable.

Yes, I noticed the screw also. As an engineer, it amazes me the amount of design that obviously went into this tiny cover piece and it still doesn't work any better than a cheap piece of plastic with just a nib on it. I am waiting to see if the V2 shoe cover is a better design, or QC.
