    Like I always tell my wife... If you can't put it back together with fewer parts than the person who designed it, you are no smarter than they are.

    I have an agreement with the repairer who services my gear, he doesn't take pictures, and I don't service equipment.

    No word from Mark Hama regarding my camera

    Tried calling and leaving messages, no reply to my emails, nothing for about a month and he hasn't cashed the check.... Delivery confirmation says someone signed for it. First, I hope he is ok. Second, I wish I could get in touch with him. Do any of you have contact with him? I heard about him from this forum.

    Sad to say that no matter how good his CLA work is, I cannot recommend Mark Hama... TERRIBLE communication, over two months and only one email saying he got back from vacation. He cashed the check a month ago. I just want to know the status. Since I found out about him on this thread, if anyone else does the same, I suggest someone else. I hate writing things like this, but I really just want my camera back.

    Truly sorry to hear this, Jason. My experience was the exact opposite, but that doesn't excuse your experience at all. Occasional excellence is really not excellence.

    I hope Mr. Hama reads this...

    Did everyone get their stuff back? I was just looking for the best place to send my VERY used black Canonet Ql17GIII (made in Japan). I got it for a great price considering it's color and origin but it needs a good CLA from a pro, not just a tabletop lube job & tighten-up. Just wondering if Tony or Jason got their cameras back from Mr. Hama.

    Nope, despite repeated attempts to contact him, my Fujica and $140 are gone.
