Hey guys, I just got my 560III today and upon inspection the LCD panel appears "warped" when looked at different angles. When you look at the LCD panel directly it appears fine but looking from a >45* angle it looks out of wack. In a dark room with little lighting looking directly at the LCD panel, its warped beyond belief and its hard to read. Is this normal? Should I return this? This is my first flash, so I am not sure if this is normal to be like this or not. But it performs great! I bought it from Amazon and it was shipped in the US. So I dont have to worry about sending overseas, unless the retailer wants me to send it through warranty.

Heres photos of the flash

Yes, they will. I have an old Roland synthesizer from the late 90's that had one...little...spot like this; it spread like wildfire and rendered the whole screen - and thus, the whole synth - useless.
