Re: Tripod threads
In reply to mikemsphoto, Nov 20, 2012

This cross section drawing does explain how the damage on my camera is on the front and not on the back.  In the drawing the base is keyed to the back which will hold it pretty tightly.  The front is no doubt screwed into internal frame components but no screws are shown.  If those screws or the body threads are stretched the a gap will be produced.

I still think that the load on the tripod thread is the most likely cause of what has happened.

Thanks for sending this along.
