Yes, I know what you are thinking, I know that the camera was stripped when it fell in my bag. I spoke to a specialist at a local camera store and he said that he could put in new screws and realign the camera, but I need to first find this piece. It kinda looks like a big staple and I think they help the camera lens make contact with the body by acting as a conductor and snap in place under the lens mount. There's normally 3, and I think it was vacuumed up or thrown away.
If there's anyone who has any extras from an old camera or could sell me just this one for my D90 I would gladly pay 20 bucks for it.
