    Nikon f2 camera cleaning/repair recommendations in NoVa

    Hello,

    Am located in Northern Virginia and am trying to locate a reputable person/business to clean/tune-up repair a Nikon F2AS that has been sitting unused for about ten years.
    Would prefer NoVa, Maryland, DC locations but would consider others to ship to? Any recommendations? I don't think it needs extensive repairs but rather cleaning in and out, foam replaced, lubrication and I'd like to get the shutter speeds checked etc...

    Thanks, 1918stella

    I've gotten good service and repair from Garry's Camera Repair in Illinois. Quick turnaround, very reasonable prices, and he's done a number or repairs, both minor and not so minor.

    I've also had very good service from KEH in Atlanta. Very reputable company, good service and repair, not as inexpensive as Garry's.

    Since you're willing to send it somewhere, why not send it to the Nikon F2 guru?

    Your camera will return in better than new condition. I plan to send mine to him sometime within the next 12 months. I've already had the meter overhauled with a part that he makes. A heavy duty ring resistor, so I will never have to deal with a twitchy meter readout on my DP-12 finder again.

    +1 on that suggestion. Sover is king.
