Another recommendation for Youxin Ye. I purchased a CLA through E-Bay, within 4 days he got my M3 back to me complete with a pen picture of its history and his assessment of its overall condition.

His communication from the moment I purchased his service through E-Bay to when he shipped the camera was excellent.

I've popped in a roll of Portra and it feels like a well oiled machine :-)

This might be a dumb question, but why not just send the camera to Leica for a factory authorized CLA? They still service the M2, M3, etc. Nothing wrong with going with an independent technician. I'm just wondering why going the Leica Service Center route doesn't seem to be a popular option.

That's a good question. Leica USA Web site still lists Calumet for servicing and lists others who do not advertise Leica servicing themselves.

So for me it comes down to reputation and accessability.
