Voigtlander 50mm f1.1 nokton missing screw

Hello all!
I've recently acquired a 50mm f1.1, but the other day I noticed that there was a tiny amount of wiggle in the barrel. I had a look and lo and behold, there was a missing screw! There are 4 screws around the barrel which are located under the focus ring. I promptly tightened the others which were a quarter turn loose. But now I'm missing a screw which I'd very much like to replace. Any idea where one can obtain such tiny screws? I will attach a photo but first I need to remember my Flickr details so I can upload it.

Many thanks

Pavel

I had the same on mine, I went to the local camera store, he opened up some boxes with lots of screws from leftover lenses. I used nail polish as 'loctite' to fasten the screw in. I did the same for the other 3 screws. It's a common problem with these lenses. Next up will be your front ring filter thread that gets wobbly
