    Hi Ralph,

    Zeiss told him they wouldn't repair the lens. They gave him the run around and ended up telling him they couldn't do the repair unfortunately.

    P.S> Hope you are well. I still owe you a print to say thanks for all the help with the transfer functions for my paper neg process. I've been bogged down with moving and renovations but I'll have one off to you when things settle down. Take care of yourself!

    I've just left a message on David Odess's voicemail to see if he has any ideas or a replacement front element.

    Thanks for the replies folks!

    Francesco, I was told the same thing by Zeiss. They said they won't touch Hasselblad lenses anymore. Their service department told me to contact Hasselblad directly. Sadly, Hassy has a steep charge for simply requesting any quotes for service. I'll stick to the internet/local shops until I run out of other options...

    Please post back if David has any ideas.

    Thanks again!

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    David said that I should speak to Hasselblad in NJ so I called them and left a message and haven't received a response yet.

    I'm not sure if this guy is willing to make a trip Zeiss, lens in hand, to insist that they fix it lol.

    I think as others have said, his best best is probably to sell the lens as a parts lens and buy another. I'll check out the polishing guy that Johnielvis is talking about to see if thats an option.

    The black paint idea would work to reduce flare but with this lens being a super wide, DOF is more the issue. Especially with the lens stopped down, he'll definitely see the defect in the images simply because of the wide DOF of the lens.
