    Nikon Lens Repair

    Can anyone recommend a place in the UK that I can have my lens repaired. I have a Nikon 80-200 f2.8 AFS that seems to have got some kind of mould or growth on some of the glass elements. Hopefully it will clean off and has not damaged the coating. Any nikon owners used somewhere they were happy with?

    Thanks.

    They have replaced front elements for me, (near mint from *-bay) and other jobs. Prompt reliable and the Pros choice I was told by a real photojournalist in London.

    I note you're in the north-west. I've heard of a well recommended repair company called Newton & Ellis, I believe they are in Liverpool. I've no experience of them myself, maybe others on this forum have and can give you their contact details.
