Garry's camera has handled two repairs for me with satisfactory results. One was a broken SRT-101b and the other was a Hi-matic 7sII with a non-functioning meter. Garry did both repairs with no problems. All that said though, I've seen enough negative posts about Garry's to not use them for something serious. I too have used John T. and was very happy with his service also. I believe if any of my various MF Minolta's develop a serious problem John will be the first one I contact. For me Garry's is a source for cheap CLA'a and minor repairs of select items. Hope this helps.
