Unfortunately the problem is common

Panasonic, please correct this problem ASAP.

I have been using my LX3 for almost two weeks now and I'm generally
quite happy with it. But I have noticed that the LCD display is
misaligned in relation to the camera body and protective window.

The LCD module behind the window is both at an angle and not in the
middle of the window aperture. To check whether the LCD module is
tilted, just press the menu/set button and compare the line pattern
on bottom to the window aperture edge.

This is not a big thing but it has started to bother me more and
more. Also, I feel that this affects my photography as horizon might
be tilted more easily because of this. Is this just my unit or a more
common issue with early batches?


The DPR sample of LX3 has that misaligned display module too:
