    Hi guys, Need quick advise with a pair of Romeo i just received. One side of the frame is wobbly; the top gasket is still intact. Tried to remove the lens and insert gasket back & lastly tigten the t6 screw. Result: better, less wobbly. But still not tight. What do i need to replace in that case? New top gasket? Please advise :)

    nothing. its moving because it is designed to flex through the lens. dont overtighten the screw because you will encourange lens cracking. the frame flex is normal- its meant to do that, its not a solid-frame design. just take care of it as you would a flex coupler.

    i have a fix for that... a small modification to the lens so it is less likely to crack with use. or just dont use that pair haha. you can also try loosenin the screw slightly...

    Try changing the orbital screw.. It'll tighten back to new condition.

    its NOT meant to be rock solid if you want to actually use them. thats how you crack lenses. mopiko, the flex is perfectly normal....
