Hi: I am looking for a good lens tech that has experience with Russian OCT19 mount lenses. I am in the Washington DC area and would prefer someone local. Barring that, someone in the US, and finally, overseas. This is basically being driven by concerns over the costs of shipping, insurance, time, Customs, insurance, and all the other problems that can occur with shipping out a large lens kit for service.

I'd also appreciate any guidance on the range of prices for CLAing of these lenses (cleaning, lubrication, adjustment).

I'd appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance.

The usual suspects:

Paul Duclos of Duclos Lenses in Canoga Park, CA. Finest craftsmanship, charges appropriately.

Bernie O'Doherty at Super16 Inc in upstate NY. Easy to work with, less expensive, sometimes gets backed up with work (great tech for Russian cameras too).

Olex Kalynychenko, olex.camera@gmail.com in Ukraine. Easy to work with, but you gotta send them a loooong ways from Washington.

Best,
