    Hello,
    I have a Nikkor 35mm f/2 with amazing glass but have found out that this glass is loose. The glass elements are not tight. Is there a place in NYC that would be able to repair the lens? Any idea what the price would be?
    thanks
    Arthur

    Did you try B&H or Adorama?

    Have you tried looking up Nikon Authorized Service locations at the Nikon web site? They should have one (or more) in your area. A few years ago I had a 50/1.4 overhauled by one of the authorized service shops in my area and it came back as good as new, and the price wasn't unbearable either (but I don't remember how much.).

    I have actually discovered that the whole front element was loose. I was able to screw it back down and it now is not loose. I will hope that it stays where it is.
    Thanks for the help.
