Never thought of that as an option. Thanks. I'll try the next time since this cleaning job could be done over here (Japan). If it requires much more serious overhaul (severe damage on the optics, etc), I'll definitely contact them.

But what happened Leica U.S.A. in New Jersey? Is it still around doing any service? If you have read my earlier post, I will not choose it again, but I still wonder if it's still doing the repairs for the Leica cameras and lenses...
