    Thanks

    I believe that Greg Weber specializes in cleaning and repairing Konica cameras.

    Yes, Greg did my IIIa a few months ago. He did excellent work, and when I had a concern about the vertical alignment on the rangefinder (I'm picky), I sent it back to him and he adjusted it to my complete satisfaction. I also asked him to disable the EV interlock, which makes the camera much easier to use. I know that you can pull back the EV ring to disengage the f/stop and shutter speed settings, but not having to do that makes the camera much faster to shoot with. It's a lovely camera, and the lens is great. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    You need to call Greg, not email. Its so much easier to talk to him than send email.
