    Lens cleaning/repair in Europe?

    I live in France most of the year, and have a couple of lenses, 1 prime, 1 zoom, that I would like to have properly cleaned internally.
    Does anyone have recommendations for a shop to do this?

    I have had three cameras and two lenses for repair/CLA over the last two years with PAEPKE Fototechnik in Düsseldorf. They do a first class job IMO. You can correspond with them in English. You'll find their web site through Google.

    I also use Newton Ellis and find them to be excellent. Over the past couple of years they have brought back to life a Rollieflex 3.5F which had been bounced (not by me,btw), a 150mm. Hass. Sonnar, a Hass. ELM body, a Zuiko 50mm. f1.4 and a Swift Audobon 8.5 x 44 bino.. Old gear yes, but now as good as new. They have been in business for many years on Merseyside and I can thoroughly recommend them.

    Thanks, folks.
    I'm going to be in the UK for a while, and in between pints of real ale will contact Mr. Spencer and Newton Ellis and see if they can help me out.
