    Hi, just a feeling here: compared to f.e. the Panasonic G line or Canon DSLRs, the articulation mechanism just does not seem to be enough strong and massive, it is a bit loose, especially when fully flipped out. Does anyone have the same experience?

    Mine is tight.

    Three has been mention of the screws coming loose that hold the screen on. It has been suggested to use a dab of nail polish on them to keep them tight.

    Thanks, am checking it than. Maybe I was a bit exaggerated, it does not feel bad at all. It is also maybe just a bit different.

    Also, don't over tighten, as the screws are only threaded into plastic, and that was part of the reason it has been mentioned, i.e. use nail polish instead of tightening beyond snug.

    Luckilly it is not needed at the moment I think. If it gets problematic (hopefully no, and it is just a different feel), I will ask the Auth. Service Center later on.
