I am screwed by a tiny screw
Jun 29, 2013

This is a freaking sequential events. Camera slipped off shoulder and Nikon 55-200mm VR broke its plastic mount and D300 was OK. Nikon would charge $80 plus or even over $100 to fix it. Not worth to do so. So I found a replacement plastic mount on ebay for $5-6. Found instruction to disassemble it. While working on it my 3 year old came to me for a while. Afterwards one of the two tiny short screw tying the blade level could be found nowhere. It's for the moving parts so it has to be very securely fastened. It's even not possible to describe when you want to others to know what you want. I found some tiny screws (a box of 250) at amazon.com and none of them fit. So I can't fix this lens. I don't know where I could find such tiny screw.
