Fotohuis Wed October 15, 2008 Positive I can only recommend this address in the Netherlands as very reliable vand professional for camera repair and check up. It's value for the money if you want to have a hussle free older camera working 100%.

Best regards,

Rogrund Wed October 15, 2008 Positive Reasonable prices, good communication and excellent work. I really can recommend Will van Manen.
palec Sat November 15, 2008 Positive Mr. Will van Manen did CLA and focus adjustment of my lens. The turnabout was quick and price was nice.
Frank1969 Tue November 18, 2008 Positive Will van Maanen Kamerservice in the Netherlands has given a CLA'd to my 1959 Rolleiflex f. It works flawlessly ever since. Got it back in about 10 days and the price was very reasonable. I would not hesitate to have him work on one of my other camera's should it need service.
REINIER Wed November 19, 2008 Positive Will is a very good mechanic,with Leica . He
clad several Leicas and lenzes. The result is very good. Next leica goes to him again.René

photorat Thu February 19, 2009 Positive Probably the best address in Europe for a CLA/repair work. Friendly, informative service, extremely quick turnaround and very professional job.
Randal Tue March 24, 2009 Positive Van Manen did a great CLA & repair-job on my Contax II, Nikon S, Nikon S2 & Nikon SP.
Very reasdonable prices, friendly and fast delivery.
One of the best professionals I have ever met during my 45 years photographic career.
Torsten Thu May 14, 2009 Positive This address is almost too good to be told. It's my secret. Will van Manen does the best job I can imagine. Even very complicated, hopeless cases are treaded in the best possible way. Extremely professional, very friendly and excellent prices. I've never had such a good repairman before. Now, all my items needing CLA or repair go to Will, I'm not even thinking about an alternative.
achi4 Sat May 16, 2009 Positive Wil van Manen did some work for me.
The work was more than excellent, the price so reasonable that I was completely surprised, and the service very fast.
sanderva Wed October 28, 2009 Positive Super fast and reliable address for all things Leica, including coding for M8/M9 at a very reasonable price!
rickp Wed October 28, 2009 Positive i've worked with leica customer service and another repair service in germany, and was very pleased with both. i recently changed to will van manen's kamera service because he is able to do a wide range of repair, cleaning, adjustment AND recently, 6-bit coding of lenses for use with the leica m8. so far, he's done fine work and coding on a 35mm nokton 1.2; the leica 135mm f2.8, and is now helping me with a 21mm SA. email contact is first class with will and cathy. repairs are quick and complete and very well packaged for return to me. don't hesitate to contact them, even with odd projects!
greetings from hamburg, rick
Ronald_H Mon January 25, 2010 Positive Will van Manen is highly recommended. He has worked on everything from Leica to Nikon to Hasselblad and every time my gear was brought back into tip-top condition. Highly recommended.
CLE-RF Sun April 25, 2010 Positive Will fixed my black M3 double stroke, it had winding issues. Combined with a full CLA, my camera is good to go another 55 years, smooth as butter!
condon Sun April 25, 2010 Positive I bought a M3 and a Summaron on ebay and sent them to Will for CLA. They came back after about ten days shining and smoth as new. Very nice service. Highly recommended.
dnr Sun April 25, 2010 Positive I had two of my Leica lenses coded by Will van Manen. Got them back in less than a week. Perfect work, good prices, nice communication, highly recommended

bidnez Thu January 13, 2011 Positive I´ve used Will van Maanen and Caty Kuiper´s services several times now and recommend them warmly. Great work, great service - on time, reasonalble pricing
pixelatedscraps Mon March 7, 2011 Positive Kamera Service successfully removed the famous white spot problem from my M-Rokkor 28mm f/2.8.

Good prices, fast turnaround and a pleasure to know there are such capable people out there.

StaaleS Fri June 10, 2011 Positive I sent my M3 to them for a much-needed CLA and it was completed on time and on the financial estimate. The camera is now a joy to use. Recommended!
krötenblender Fri June 10, 2011 Positive See this thread, to read, what he did for my lens:
Really good service. Recommended!
haempe Sat July 23, 2011 Positive Good work on my CLE and two lenses.
Highly recommended.
nobbylon Mon October 24, 2011 Positive Will and Cathy have fixed and serviced various M's and lenses over the last 5 years. Recently an M6 with an intermittent winding problem and a superb facelift of a 50 Summicron. No job is too big or small, always reachable on the phone and always welcoming when I'm there even when they are busy. Superb, regards John W
alainMP Mon December 5, 2011 Positive Very good communication ,excellent work at reasonable prices. They are true professionals and highly recommended!
epmul Thu April 12, 2012 Positive I have used Will van Manen's services on several occasions during 2012 and was mcuh impressed by the friendly competent work and their fair prices. They deserve to succeed ! I would strongly recommend them without any constraints especially for Leica M work
Werner Thu May 24, 2012 Positive amazingly competent, yet MUCH cheaper than other "official" repair services. Actually my IIIf now runs perfectly for a quarter (!) of what Leica wanted me to pay ;-)
additionally, MUCH better feedback on the condition of the camera and how to repair it.
bertb Tue May 13, 2014 Positive Purchased a Leica M4-P that was then sent to Will van Manen by the dealer for a CLA. It came back today. It looks and operates like new! Even the ultra tiny missing part of the covering was repaired. And this for a very reasonable price too.
Leicakillen Fri August 15, 2014 Positive I just really would like to recommend van Manen. He coded my Elmarit 90, cleaned it and fine adjusted the focus. Very fast operation, good communication, good prices!! I will use him in the future!!
Bart D Wed December 24, 2014 Positive Another vote for Will van Manen and Cathy Kuiper - Kamera Service: very warm welcome and excellent service!
beijoca Fri January 9, 2015 Positive kamera-service repaired and cleaned my Minolta Autocord. Also, they added regular strap lugs to the camera (a common problem with these cameras since original straps are scarce, see discussions on flickr). I'm very satisfied with the service, recommended!
LarsAC Sat August 22, 2015 Positive Had an M2 and a IIIg sent for CLA. Communication and work carried out was perfect!
PhotoManB Tue September 13, 2016 Positive Absolutey fantastic repair and service, my M7 is like new at a cost that Leica can only dream of, Thanks Will and Cathy!
Earl of Gloucester Mon August 21, 2017 Positive Highly competent and patient service. Draws on years of practical specialist experience. Very reliable. Trust him entirely.
