    I have a Carl Zeiss Jena sonnar 180mm, needs a re-lube on the helicoid threads. I am hoping for a recommendation for a top shelf tech to perform this, in USA. The lens is pristine otherwise, so I want to keep it away from the WD-40, ball-peen hammer crowd. Thanks much in advance.

    I've had them rebuild a couple 35mm lenses and overhaul several 35mm camera bodies over the years. They are competent, competetive and busy.

    I have used them for vintage Rollei overhauls and couldn't be happier with them. (Likewise, some disclaimer applies to me)
