    When I attempt to attach the touch LCD to the top of the EPIC so that the angled side protrudes over the lens mount, the screws for some reason find a bit of resistance when initially contacting the camera and inevitably after both screws are fully tightened, the LCD feels a little loose and wobbles a bit on the camera.

    If I turn the LCD around, so that the angled side protrudes over the camera, the screws thread fine and after tightened everything feels very solid.

    I've tried both sides numerous time now and the result is consistent. Anyone know what the issue is?

    THANKS! :)

    Are you using the threaded holes on the LCD - if so your bolts going from them into the threaded holes on the body will normally bind because the threads don't line up properly and stop you fully tightening.

    If it happens to work the other way round, you just got lucky that the threads lined up.

    Try using the unthreaded holes on the LCD and should then work both ways round.
