Hi. Sorry, didnt think about that the release was just 2 days ago. I only have a Hero3+ without a display. I made 2 pictures where you can see the skew display and camera lense. I read through some comments on amazon of the new 7 Black and others seems like having the same problem. Its this maybe a thing for the support?

 

Sorry for my bad English and paint-skills :)

 

EDIT: I know I photographed from the side a little bit but light is not so good here. Didnt want my shadow on the picture.

The lens screws on/off so there is no saying if the one in the picture is completely on correctly.  It's hard to tell from the picture if the display is off or not since the angle of the picture is slightly off.  Not sure if it really matters a whole lot, but I guess to some it might.

Another try. I know its not major problem but it seems like they have some manufacturing issues...

Lens looks fine, LCD looks slightly skewed but when I line it up (scroll on browser) to the black header above, it looks straight. Might be an optical illusion since you have different border width.

Just give the front lens a little clockwise turn to see if it straightens it up.
