    C330 stiff aperture 80mm lens

    I just picked up a C330 with 55/80/150mm lenses. Everything seems to be fine with the exception of the aperture adjustment on the 80mm lens. It seems to be quite stuff. While it works, it would be better if it were a little smoother. Any advice on how to repair this?

    I've been using Mamiya C TLRs for twenty three years and I suggest you have it CLAd by a professional.

    Anyone to suggest in Canada or the US? I tested the shutter and the speeds all seem ok. The aperture is definitely quite stiff when compared with the other two lenses.

    Another possibility is Paul Ebel

    Paul Ebel in US - Wisconsin/MN is another possibility, he did some work on a C330F and 105 DS lens for me and it works well
