Repair Shop for Old EF Lenses?
« on: June 30, 2013, 04:09:42 PM »
Looking for some recommendations if I need to have some older EF lenses repaired. For instance, my trusty EF 20-35/2.8L has developed a rattle inside that sounds suspiciously like a loose element. I live in the Midwest USA but no problem in shipping anywhere in the States. If you have had good luck with any shop(s), would appreciate contact info. Thanks in advance. (Apologies if this thread has been asked before. If so, where can I find previous info?)

Canon still repair the 20-35L - or at least they do in the UK. Just had a quote for fitting new central barrel and AF/MF switch.

If you do a search on the forums here, you will find that others have recommended Midwest Camera Repair.  They are a factory authorized service center for Canon and Nikon.

I've had repairs done by them and was very happy.  You can get a estimate by e-mail if you fill out their online form.
