Hello, let me report on my issue.

I had the flat cable ordered and soldered. Then I mounted the lens back and...it works flawlessly! That's great, I know, but:

  1. I noticed that 2 of the 4 screws keeping the lens sealed are sort of "stripped" in the sense that they will turn forever. This is really bad since I'm afraid that the lens can open up again, breaking the cable.
  2. The rear part of the barrel (which attaches to the front part, that's part #23 on the diagram posted by Otto) is simply "plugged" into, without any glue or adhesive tape. As the previous point, this is something that sets me afraid that the barrel can open again.

Hence, I'm hare again to ask for your (precious) help. How can I solve the above issues and make my lens as solid as it used to be?

Thanks in advance.
