I need to have an Optar prime lens cleaned. Who do you trust for service, reasonable rates and turn around time?

Bernie O'Doherty at Super 16 Inc. may be the man. Although he is usually pretty busy, his work and rates are the best.

What do you mean cleaning the lens, though?

Abel can do this work. So can a lens specialty shop such as Duclos Lenses.

Strongly agree with Mitch on Duclos Lenses. He's done a number of Zeiss lenses for me over the years and he really does top notch work.

I'm sure Abel would do a great job too.

Best,

Duclos is AWESOME! They did a fantastic job on my Zeiss Supers.. I especially like the fact that the 'Meter' measurements are now Blacked Out... SO NICE!!!! Great Pricing!! Fast Turnaround!!

I should check Duclos out. I have heard about them, all positive comments. Can they do mount conversions?
