    Wow they look great. I need to find a place in the US to do my OM-1, the shutter is slow.

    I've had almost all my cameras CLA'd in the last two years and they are all like new now, and should be good for another twenty five years, although I don't think I will.

    I've had camera gear overhauled but it generally comes back PERFORMING like new as opposed to coming back LOOKING like new.

    Nice looking cameras... and that's quite a compliment coming from someone who has never really been indoctrinated ito the Olympus club!

    Solid work by Midwest Camera Repair, but there's only so much you can do after 30+ years. :smile:

    Do they give you a discount if you plug them on the forums?

    Actually, Camerarepairs are Mike Spencer and he is a one man band. I've just had a new (to me) OM2n come back from him. I've had 3 OMs refoamd and CLAd by Mike now and he is highly recommended. At the price he charges I wouldn't take a discount even if one was offered. If you are UK/Europe based he should certainly be high on the list if you need an OM sorting. His CLA on OM1s BTW, includes adding a diode to the internal battery circuit to use SR44 cells.
