Hello -

 

I have just recieved a wonderful S16 LTR, but the prism in the viewfinder has broken free from the rotating shaft and while the glass prisms are ok, the anti-reflective black glass on the sides is broken and the prisms no longer rotate with the viewfinder and also can shift.  Does this mean I just need another viewfinder or can it be repaired by a layman?  I'm handy with cameras, but don't usually fool with the opticals as they are very fragile.  I'm in LA, and have sent an initial email to Bernie for starters.  Any advice would be appreciated.

 

Joe
