Finally! This model 011 went to Chris Sherlock in NZ after I got it from an ePray auction in mid-February, and it came back today. It cleaned up very well, thought I'd share a few images of the results. We may actually get a dry day tomorrow in Seattle, so I'll wander out to fire off a role of HP5 and see how it performs (at least as well as I can do).

Now THAT'S downright purty! Hope it shoots as good as it looks.

What was the cost of the CLA? What was the cost of shipping to NZ? Was it a short turn around time? The camera sure looks good, I'd like to see some of the pictures it takes.

Regards,
Tom

Currently, Chris charges US$80 for a Retina CLA. That includes return postage. Cocking racks on the IIa and IIIc are additional ($20 for a replacement rack). US airmail shipping from the west coast is 6-8 days at ~$12, and Chris has 1+ weeks turnaround, depending on what's ahead in the queue. Top notch work, though. This is the second camera he's done for me. Drop him a line, he's always ready to chat about Retinas. See http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/%7ESrawhiti/index.html for contact info.
