    Lens repolishing recommendations please

    Hello,

    I have a 135mm Symmar that came to me years ago with a mass of tiny fine cleaning marks - I now have a nice newer old one, but would prefer to have the scratched on repolished rather than bin it - 135mm is my "standard" 5x4" landscape length

    Who is a good lens re-polishing company?

    Please PM me if you have any recommendations, as I can never find old posts of mine in the plethora of information on this site

    John

    I had Focal Point work on a Summarit of mine many years ago, and they did an outstanding job. The lens came back looking like new.

    Focal Point did my Summicron-DR. The front and rear elements needed polishing. They did an exceptional job. The lens now has amazing resolution with restored contrast typical of a 'cron. I would certainly send another lens in need of polishing and re-coating to them.
