Thanks for this sticky. I`ve used Miles twice now, once for my 85mm 1.8 RE Auto Topcor which I was loathe to send abroad, it had stiff focus and some fungus and he did a superb job. The other was a hazy Summaron 35mm 3.5. Quick turnaround on both.

Great to hear it worked so well for such an expensive and rare lens (have it, too)!!

I had to trust someone with it eventually, it was stored and not getting used much. I also noted the fungus was spreading so had to trust someone. He removed it all and apart from the tiniest residual peripheral coating mark which is only visible with a torch/magification, it`s all good to go. Not had the best weather to get out with it but will soon.He CLA`d it too.

£50 plus postage from Miles.

Just to add:- Miles hasn't the optical equipment to correct a de-centred lens....but there isn't much else he cannot do if he can get the parts.
