Hello,
I have a couple prime lenses for an Arri S, One Cooke and two xenons. All Lenses work well, but I have a gut feeling they could be sharper. The focus ring has a little "play" to it. Anyhoo, Does anyone know anywhere to have them adjusted and cleaned? I'm in the bay area and it'd be sweet to go somewhere, but can ship if needed. Approx how much is this going to run me? Anyone done this before?
Thanks,
kirk

The two places I would recommend is Paul Duclos in North Hollywood at Duclos Lenses (they have a web site) and Visual Products in Cleveland Ohio (they also have a web site).

Paul did some Schneiders for me and they are great, and Visual Products did a set of Cookes for me and they came out great too. You would have to talk to them about rates.

PS: If you want to see samples from the Cookes that Visual Products did for me, (on an Arriflex 16S), check out:
