Recommended repair service for Olympus XA

I'd like to have my XA thoroughly serviced.

The meter is under-reading by three stops, and the little yellow diamond in the viewfinder is not at all easy to see.

I'd prefer somewhere in the UK, Netherlands or Italy.

Any recommendations?

Try Newton Ellis in Liverpool. They will at least give you an idea if it's worth repairing.

I usually send XA's etc (from the XA etc range) to Luton Cameras


I've been pleased so far and they do spares and have refurbished Olympus cameras too.

Regards, David

I'll second the recommendation for Luton Cameras. They did a full CLA on my Oly 35RD a few years back and the camera is still holding up well. No more sticky shutter blades.
