    Contax G2 repair situation

    I have been a G2 user for some years, and considering purchasing another body and lens. Since Contax is out of the camera business, who is servicing these cameras? I'm a professional and usually need fast turn-around, or at least not weeks.

    TOCAD is the new official repair service, however, users report a high degree of unreliability. KEH has a repair service and experience with the Contax G camera. Their normal turnaround time is pretty quick.

    For your future use, you might want to keep the following information:

    Kyocera/Contax Japan has a repair service for its products purchased abroad. The person you need to contact is Mr. Tsutsui. You can speak and/or write him in English.

    The photo# is 81-266-27-2122. The fax# is 81-266-27-3147.

    There's no email address for him for this service.

    This information is however not listed on Kyocera/Contax Japan's website:

    http://www.kyocera.co.jp/prdct/optic...t/inquiry.html

    I just called them and found out because I own a Contax camera I bought in the U.S. and wanted to know if I could use the service in Japan.

    But I don't know where to buy new Contax cameras at this point.
