Repair recommendations UK LEICA FORUM

I note that the repair FAQ is a little out of date but I am asking this question because I have had a mixed experience with repair of my set-up (Leica M3 + Type II 50mm DR Summicron).


I have used:

1) Sherry Krauter - body CLA after I bought camera (sending camera body from UK to USA was a bit of a pain)

2) Will van Manen Kamera-Service - replaced shutter cloth and general CLA

3) Cameraworks-uk - lens repair and CLA


Is there really anybody else left (in the UK preferably) who is reasonably priced (and I don't mean to say cheap!), efficient, responsive and most of all understands and carries out the correct procedures appertaining to Leica hardware and has the total confidence of people who employ them to do the job?


I think maybe I am asking a lot, I know.

Ilford's HP5 and T-Max Exposure Latitude LEICA FORUM

An interesting article from the Carmencita Lab:


I've settled on supporting Ilford by buying their B+W films, and Kodak through their Portra films. Nice to see a modern article about Ilford films from a company who care about the results and customer satisfaction.


Servicing R cameras: the end of the story for R8 ... LEICA FORUM
I stumbled on this article by chance: https://www.photoscala.de/2018/07/14/r-schatten-der-m/

Apparently Leica has stopped servicing all R cameras and shifted that burden to the specialist Paepke Fototechnik in Düsseldorf.

While sufficient spare parts are said to be available for R3 to R7 models, there would be none left for the R8 and R9 since the start of this year. Repairing these latter cameras would thus no longer be possible!

Those two cameras, notwithstanding the fact that they were the latest R models, have thus effectively been reduced to paperweights in case of malfunctioning.

Sad day.

Is that really a fact?
Wait time for in-person service at Wetzlar LEICA FORUM

I will be in Frankfurt next year and I plan to make a day trip to visit the Leica HQ and factory in Wetzlar. The Leica website says that Customer Care is available for in-person service requests. I might use that opportunity for a CLA on an MM v1 and/or lens and rangefinder adjustment. Does anyone have a sense of their turnaround time? Is it a same-day type of thing, or should I be prepared to return a few days later?

Leitz 73mm f/1.9 LEICA FORUM
Hello, I own a 1930 vintage Leitz/Leica 73mm f/1.9 lens. It came to me as a beauty. I have used it off and on over the past couple years on a Ricoh M crop camera. I recently bought a full frame Leica M262. I want to use this beautiful vintage Leitz lens on my M262 but i do not have a suitable lens shade for it. They appear to be more difficult to find than the original lens, and ridiculously priced. I am a user, not a collector. I want to explore this fabulous vintage lens but it is subject to extreme flare in most light. Point it towards any bright light source minus a lens sahde and it will flare.

I do not care about originality. I want to use this lens. Can anyone suggest a suitable lens shade I can buy or how to make one?

Thank you,

Boise, Idaho
