    Just putting together my 16803 package and wondering about this 3 screw vs 4 screw option for attaching the FW7. I figure since you're given the option, there couldn't be a major problem with it so I am going with 3 screws just because I am likely a person who could damage the optical sensor if given the opportunity. However I was trying to see if there was any flex between the wheel and the camera on the side of the single screw. I could not see anything obvious but wondering if anyone has had an issue with that? Is it a potential problem?
    Thanks

    I would go with three screws. There is a risk of damaging the sensor going for that last screw. The camera is very well supported with three screws; both the camera and the filter wheel housings are very stiff - they're not going to flex.
