Loose top LCD-screen

When I attached my AC-Maxx LCD protector I felt that the glass on the top LCD was loose on one side. Without any force at all could lift the side to the right seen from behind. Is this normal (just fitted in a sealing) or is the glass not properly glued on my K-5? It's not good to have a unsealed area on top of the camera so it's better to ask.

Don't have a K-5, but this is not normal, especially on a WR body. Get it fixed asap, or stay out of the rain, dust....

Yeah, I got over a year of warranty left so it's no real biggie and I'll ask them to check for backfocus too.

Has anyone with the "Dust under the LCD" encountered loose glass?

My camera is now at the service place and the guy behind the desk had never encountered this, only dust under the big LCD screen. It's good to hear that it's that uncommon.

Camera back from repair and they changed the tape under the glass and now it both looks and feels like it fits more snugly.
