    Hi Everybody. I have a wonderful black canon ql17 GIII that's in dire need of a CLA. Since I live in Denmark, I wonder i any of you know of a reputable repairshop in Europe that can give it a thorough CLA. I thought of sending it to Mark Hama in the US but I've heard too many stories of people who never got their cameras back, or got them months after they sent them to him.
    Hopefully someone will know of a place in Europe that does quality work without it costing an arm and a leg.
    Kind Regards
    Mads Hartmann

    Thanks
    I've thought about Will van Manen, but he is, I'm sure rightfully, in the more expensive part of the spectrum. J├╝rgen Kuschnik is another camera-repairer who does excellent work, but he too errs on the expensive side.
    Does anybody know of others who does excellent work but for less money?

    I've been VERY happy to deal with Bruno Lancement ( http://www.atelierdeblanc.fr/ ), he's been very friendly and competent, for prices I found reasonable.

    He fixed an aperture issue on my Hassy 80 mm, and the "squeak" on my Canon AE1-Program.
