Missing screws from my nifty fifty!

Hi

On Thursday evening I noticed two screws have gone from the body of my Canon 50mm f1.4 lens as a result the various parts have come off the body!

I noticed one was gone about a month ago and i replaced it with a screw that I got from an old point and shoot camera It seemed to fit but I now think it wasn't long enough!

does anyone of any ideas where one could get replacement screws?

Thanks

I may have some spare screws available. Any ideas what size/length? Pics, as ZH mentioned, will help.

Can I ask is that the screw that's too small, or the one you need more of?

Just an update on this...

I managed to source some screws online through a UK company
the minimum quantity that they sold was 200
so I am left with 198 screws!!!

If anyone is in a similar situation just sent me a PM and can post some on you.
