    Got an Olympus om1/2? need a CLA or repair?

    I've had my Om1 CLA'd and battery altered by Michael Spencer recently http://www.btinternet.com/~camerarepairer/

    Can't fault his service and value for money. I think he does some other makes as well, though he said on the phone he is getting quite choosy these days as he is semi retired.

    As well as foam replacement, CLA and battery mods, my OM1 had an erratic meter, and Michael wanted to know the exact details so he could narrow down the fault. Sorted in the end as a dry solder joint on one of the meter wires

    Chatting on the phone he obviously has tons of experience. Don't wait too long, or he might retire completely!

    I've dealt with Michel, he's very helpful and knowledgeable he's good for Pentax's, he's choosy because parts for some camera's are just not available.

    Another vote for Michael, who has sorted out a couple of Pentax problems for me.
