Retiina service

My two Retinas (ia and iia) need CLA. Any recommendations for good service and quick turnaround on these two items?

Mark Hansen (zeissikonrolleirepair.com) recently did a nice CLA on a Retina IIIc for me. He provided a good summary of the work he did, along with information on the resolving capability of the lens. He was busy at the time so it took several months but it was worth the wait. It cheers me up a bit when camera repair people are busy, hopefully that will encourage them to keep working.

Chris Sherlock in NZ is well known and has a great and informative website (http://retinarescue.com/) He CLA'd my iia in about three weeks, including the trip back and forth. He did a very thorough job -- rangefinder and shutter operate perfectly. I highly recommend him, though he might cost a few dollars more than someone closer to you.

Can't recommend anyone more than Chris Sherlock.
He worked on my Retina II and it was one of the best repair experiences I've had.
