Ok you repair techies! I have a serious question here. I took the lens cap off of my Nikon 135 2.0 DC lens, and I took the cap off of my beloved D700 body, laying both on a white cloth. I then picked both up, turned them towards each other to mount them, and a screw appeared. I will try to post a picture, but not sure I remember how to, or if my basic membership allows me to. It has the "torx" head, measures approximately 3.5 to 4 mm, but I couldn't tell if it came from the lens or the camera body. It would have come from inside either one if it did. It has blue threadlock on it, which obviously didn't work. I cannot see any spots where screws are missing. Anybody have any ideas? This will be embarrassing posting this if I can't post a pic, but I will put a pic up in my gallery if I can't post one on this thread. Thanks for any input.
