    Pentax 67II CLA In Canada

    I have a Pentax 67II that I'd like to do a CLA (clean, lube, adjust) on and I'm thinking to sending it to Ricoh Canada which services Pentax now. Anyone have any idea of a ballpark figure of what the cost to do this would be?

    I would contact Horst Wenzel and ask him about his experience with your camera: http://www.canada411.ca/res/60426358...194220690.html

    I forgot about Horst. He used to run Vancam some years ago and retired. He actually repaired my old 6x7 camera in 2003. I did try calling him, but he didn't answer his phone.

    Other options would be to send to Vancam in Vancouver, but they can't get parts. And I'm kinda leary about sending them my camera, since they ruined a Canon T90 I had some years ago. I really question their experience with the 67. They say they can work on it, but that doesn't mean they know the camera.

    Another option is to send to KEH in the USA for repair. They apparently bought up a lot of Pentax parts from Pentax a few years back, so they have stock of some parts. Rocoh USA doesn't have much for this camera, and the Canadian outlet has no parts.

    Who else in the USA is experienced with the 67II and can do a good job on a CLA?

    Eric is your best bet for a P67. IMHO

    Eric won't do it because of parts supply problems from Pentax. Looks like I'll have to bug Horst again. Lets hope he can do it without needing parts. KEH won't ship internationally.

    It may be worth an email to Camtech in Hamilton Ontario. I have not used them but others report good service and repairs for med. format and leaf shutter cameras. Just a thought. Good luck.

    Many places won't work on these anymore, because parts are pretty much nill at this point for 6x7 cameras. If something needs replacing, you're hooped.
