Puh. A DIY solution is not for me. So does someone know a shop in Europe (better in Germany) where they repair a misaligned viewfinder of a Hexar RF

Take a look at my message in another thread.

I recently also received another recommendation for a Konica repair technician in Munich, which I can't back by any experience of my own (YMMV): Reiner Muchel, Agnesstr. 18 in Munich, Tel +49 (0)89 - 2727 3489.

Could you please give us some feedback of your experiences in the thread I linked to above, so that we can all benefit from the outcome?

Yeah that would be superb, unless of course it is a ridiculous number of pages and would take hours to scan.

Sadly, the images of this fine thread are gone years ago... For a new illustrated top plate removal checklist see this post.

Simple fix. I took the top cover off but that isn't always necessary. You'll reach the adjustment points through the cover. Just pop the little plastic piece off from the top cover.
