    Olympus Repair

    www.zuiko.com

    I have had a couple of cameras and one lens cla'd. You will hear great things about John if you search but be prepared to wait 6+ weeks for your repair to be completed.

    Any suggestions for a Olympus 35RC? I'd send it to zuiko.com, but his website says he doesn't service these anymore.

    I'm in Denver.

    Frank Marshman did quite a job on my Konica S3...if you don't mind shipping to VA I bet he'd do your 35RC up pretty good at a reasonable rate.

    +5 for Youxin, great servicing and fast turnaround. I have an M4 serviced by him, as well as a IIIf. Both work very well.

    The guy I work for also has lots of Leica gear and between the 2 of us, we've a fair amount of experience with Youxin. Not every servicing incident has been 100 percent perfect at first but he is extremely easy to work with when sorting out and correcting issues. Really nice guy and you simply can't beat the fast turnaround.

    I hope from this comment (and others), that Frank has gotten over whatever troubles he was encountering. I had him work on a number of cameras about 5+ years ago, and his cost and turnaround time were both great. Then a series of problems started - cameras would be gone for months, it would come back without being fixed, etc. The last straw was three tries to fix the shutter on a Chrome Six. After no improvement at all, I finally got tired of sending it back to him. SK Grimes fixed it up perfectly the first time.

    This is an amazing idea for a thread! I'm surely going to look back at this when it's time to take my cameras in for a CLA.

    Mentioned it on another thread, but for Melbourne Australia Shutter Box in Camberwell is a very good place for a thorough CLA.

    Mark Hama has my Olympus OM2n and Fujica V2. Pricey compared to what some people are being quoted, $135 each camera. I opted not to send my OM to zuiko.com because I'm incredibly impatient and it didn't need much more than a simple CLA. If it needed parts I would probably send it to someone who has easy access to them. Mr. Hama did a great job on my Yashica 12 so I felt comfortable sending more work his way.

    I sent an XD11 to Weber Camera and I ended up paying shipping for nothing. He couldn't fix an electronics issue. Probably not his fault, but I was disappointed none the less.

    Eric H. has my MX right now and everyone knows to send their Pentax to him in the USA. No point in wasting your time with anyone else.

    If you're in Canada and need work done on a Leica, there's nobody better than Gerry Smith at Kindermann (Toronto area): www.kindermann.ca
    He did a fine and fast job on my M4-P.
