    Contax II repair

    I contacted Eddie Smolov regarding a repair for my Contax. He told me that he is not accepting repairs due to ill health. He suggested Jerry Sorin, does anybody have experience with him?

    Thanks Joe, I have been on Henrys list for about 8 months and his present rate of progress looks like a 5 year wait. I might be dead by then, so I thought that I would try to get it done cheaply and quickly in the meantime. Hopefully without damaging it.

    Call Ken Ruth at Bald Mountain Photography. His web address is www.baldmt.com. If you call him be prepared for a good laugh, he has a twisted sense of humor.

    I'm sorry to hear that Eddy is not well. He repaired my Contax II and a Horizon panoramic camera, and did a good job with both, though the Horizon had to go back after the initial repair because it didn't stay for very long. Eddy took care of it without a problem.

    Hi

    Buy a Kiev, us it in place of the II, when the Kiev breaks take it apart and fix it.

    Then fix the Contax II.

    A Kiev is no good for me. I had a Contax II 40 years ago and want to relive my past. I have sent it to Jerry Sorin.

    Yikes!!!

    I'm glad I had Henry do my IIa w/50mm f/1.5 in 2006 for me. It was just a 4 month wait back then. Looks like I got in just under the wire.

    He also did an 85mm Nikkor lens for me. Fantastic work indeed.
