Subject: [Leica] ball park price for CLA on IIIc or IIf and lenses?

Essex Camera Repair, (201) 933-7272,

are charging me $130 for CLA of an IIIf BD
and a Summitar 50/f2 which I took in last

I recommend their work.

Three years ago they fixed an M3 DA and DR
Summicron 50 that some klutz had carried around
his yacht, exposed to salt sea-spray.  
The lens was almost opaque, but they got 95
percent of the fog out.

Last year I got interested in Exaktas for 
a while (what can I say: I was fascinated by
the little film-cutting knife) and they got
three of them working, including a prewar
goodie that has a fixed Rollei-type hood with
a pentaprism that hooks onto the top of it, and peers
down at the screen.  When I say "fixed," I include
the unfixable 26-second shutter speed setting,
where it had green oxide gunk coming out of 
the brass gears inside.  $100 for that one.

Ask for Mr. Moon.
