    Suggestions for minor Leica repair?

    I have my father's IIIc which is in beautiful condition except for a slow shutter.

    Where would you send it if it was yours? Contact info appreciated.

    Interesting story on this camera. My mother's sister was working in Europe for the State Department immediately after WWII. She bought this at an Army base knowing that my father, a professional photog, would appreciate it. I looked up the serial number once somewhere, it's a 1944 item. You would never know by looking at it that is was made in the hard to get materials final days of the Reich. Leatherette, impecable metal finish, etc.

    BTW, my father, mother, and and aunt are all alive still. I get photo books from the library and he loves them.

    No, Don Goldberg does very fine repair work, unless he's stopped, which I doubt. Others will recommend Sherry Krauter (sp?) also excellent, but I've only used Don for my IIIf, M3 and lenses.

    I can also recommend DAG. He did excellent work on my well used M2.

    OK, thanks. I just took the website at face value. Parts only. Will check with him.

    I'm probably going to step on some toes but here goes....DO NOT I repeat DO NOT send it to Youxin Ye....unless of course you want an oil dripping camera returned..

    I sent him a IIIf RD and it was returned with oil saturated curtains and dripped oil when I removed the base plate..

    As others have said Don Goldberg is good but a bit backlogged so it may take a few months..

    Leica repair

    You might try Kindermann in Toronto. They repaired my Rollei SL66E last year and did an excellent job.

    Hello,

    Just got a lens back from Sherry. She's worked on a number of them for me. I've never sent her a camera, but when I need to send out one of my M's, it will be to Sherry.

    There's a guy in Seatle who's very good with the older RF's - worked on my Minolta 35 Model II. Can't remember his name at the moment and I'm out of the country... If you're interested, I can get it from a friend.
