  1. I have recently bought a Leica M3 and have run a couple of films through it and have thoroughly enjoyed using it. I have owned an M6ttl for a number of years. As far as I can tell it all works great but I am not sure the film advance is as smooth as I have read about (but this could be a myth). Also there is a bit of dust or something in the viewfinder which is not really a problem in use. I would quite like to get it CLA'd just to know it is working as well as it can. I was just wondering what the general opinion of getting a cla on a camera that is working ok, is it completely unnecessary? I was thinking of using Aperture in London as I can get to them easily have used them in the past for Hasselblad repairs.
  2. So I recently got (for lack of a better word) scammed into buying a Summaron 35 2.8 with a cracked goggle (let's not get into it). The lens functions okay, but I'm wondering what my chances are of replacing the glass on the front of the goggle and what this might cost. The lens is over 60 years old, so I'm not very hopeful but wanted to check anyway. Thanks in advance for any responses.
  3. M lenses: How often do they need a CLA or overhaul? I Google searched that question and could find no definitive answer. I have searched this forum and found no answer, definitive or otherwise. Some M users say an M camera should be overhauled once for every ten years of average use (however you define average use) - more often for rampant shooters like photojournalists who may make 100,000 or more images in a year (yes, I know that precious few photojournalists work with M cameras these days). In thinking about this, it occurred to me that M cameras have significantly more moving parts and more total parts that can malfunction/break/wear out than M lenses do. So does the ten year suggestion apply to lenses, too? Or is "if it's not broken, don't try to fix it" the principle to apply to CLAs or overhauls for lenses?
  4. Hallo Leute, ich bin neu hier im Forum und seit einem Jahr stolzer Besizer einer M6, die mich seit dem in die analoge Welt eintauchen lässt. Ich habe hier zwei-drei Anliegen an die Erfahrenen M User. Vor ein paar Tagen ist mir ein dummer Fehler passiert, ich wollte einen Film zurückspulen und habe vergessen, vorher auf R umzustellen. Nach ein paar schwergängigen Umdrehungen (ich weiß, ich gehöre geohrfeigt) der Kurbel und einem leisen Klackgeräusch ist es mir aufgefallen. Nach dem Malör habe ich die Kamera auf die Rückspulfunktion überprüft, dabei ist mir aufgefallen, dass die Kurbel insgesamt ein seitliches Spiel hat, man kann sie leicht hin- und herwackeln, ich bilde mir ein, dass es vorher nicht war, muss aber auch dazu sagen, dass ich es mir noch nie so genau angeschaut habe. Meine Sorge an der Stelle ist, dass dieses Spiel mit der Zeit immer schlimmer wird. Ebenfalls ist mir, schon ab Kauf aufgefallen, dass sich der Spannhebel minimal nach oben und unten bewegen lässt und zwar mit der gesamten Auslöseeinheit, ich gehe davon aus, dass dies so nicht richtig ist, da der Vorbesitzer anscheinend dadurch einen feinen Abrieb am Gehäuse verursacht hat (das Plastickteil des Spannhebels berührt bei ungünstigen Druck das Gehäuse). Aufgrund dieses Problems werde ich der M6 eine Kur in Wetzlar gönnen. Doch bevor ich unter anderem das Problem der Kurbel in Wetzlar anspreche, wollte ich erstmal hier in der Runde fragen, ob: 1. dieses Spiel der Kurbel normal ist? 2. jemand bezüglich des Spannhebels ähnliche Erfahrungen gemacht hat und was grob auf mich zukommen wird, inkl. CLA? 3. Wie sind die Erfahrungen nach einer CLA? 4. klar, die M6 hat schon ein paar Jahre auf dem Buckel, aber habe das Gefühl, dass das Silber-Chrom angelaufen ist (dunkle Färbung im vergleich zur Bodenplatte) bekommt man das aufbereitet? Ich bedanke mich schonmal im Voraus für klärende Kommentare. LG Dominik
  5. My Tele Elmarit M 90 shows these marks when inspecting under a certain angle. It looks like dried water behind the front-element of the lens. It does not show in photos but still it concerns me. Is this serviceable? Have you ever seen something like this?
  6. At the risk of being redundant... Don at DAG Camera Repair is the best. He received my camera/lens yesterday. I'd mentioned to him that I was heading out to Joshua Tree for a photo shoot, and whatever he could do to get the camera back to me would be greatly appreciated. That Cat sent me an email this afternoon to let me know that he'd completed the CLA on my M240, and corrected the back focus on my Zeiss lens. In ONE day. Carry on.
  7. Hello everybody, I need some advice regarding repairing/CLA of an M6. The camera seems to have shutter capping (It might be partially my fault since I took out the camera at -7 degrees Celsius a whole day, however, after that, I shoot a roll in a normal temperature environment -my house- and everything was fine, all the images were fine) So... these are my questions: 1. Do I sent the camera to Leica Camera without prior notice? I mean, do I ship it with DHL and that's it? I'm asking this because on their service page they do not specify all the types of Leicas they are repairing. I'm assuming M6 is one of them but it's better to play it safe. 2. I want my problem to be fixed and also I want a full CLA (I've noticed some gunk on the winding gears and the low exposure times are not quite accurate). Should I specify the CLA part in the attached document or the CLA of a camera comes by default with the repairing process? 3. Please don't laugh on this one but the camera will be sent to: Leica Camera AG, Am Leitz-Park 5, Wetzlar, Germany? I'm asking that just to be sure that I'm sending the camera to the right address. I realize the questions are a little bit odd but I never sent a camera for a CLA (I usually shoot with two EOS3 cameras-never had a problem). I bought recently this Leica from Ebay and I want to make it "as new" before I start shooting with it intensively. Thanks in advance for the answers Cheers L.
  8. Hi all, Just had my M6 CLA’d due to a light leak around the shutter curtains. They are demonstrating some curling and leave a light leak when a frame is left in the gate for too long. The tech replaces the baffles among other things but I can still see a bit of light at the edges when shining a bright light. He claims that is normal and his other Leicas also have this. Can anyone attest if that is true by checking your shutter curtain edges when shining a bright light inside? much obliged! Boe
  9. Hi All. I have bought my first Leica M series, a rather battered M2. It has a few issues. The slower speeds don't seem quite right, the shutter button doesn't pop back up and the wind lever only springs back about 3/4 of the way. I don't think it will be difficult to sort. On a positive note, the self-timer works and the rangefinder is clean and clear and the focusing part of the rangefinder also seems fine, So I am looking for someone in the UK who can fix these issues. I am in the Newcastle Upon Tyne area, if there is anyone local, that would be even better. Also, is there anyone I should avoid? I have heard of people having to wait months to get their camera back and costs escalating. Lastly, does anyone care to share what the costs are likely to be? I have had my Rolleis serviced by an ex Rollei employee and he charges around £70 for a CLA, but I am guessing the cost of a Leica CLA will be more. Thanks for any replies. Regard Carl
  10. I've recently acquired a very cheap 35mm Summicron v4 M in very good shape. However, the front and back elements are filled with dust (or fungus). The edges don't have any obvious fungus or anything. The are only specs here and there, but mostly in the center of the elements. What do you guys think? Is it dust or fungus? Here are some pictures:
  11. Hello, I recently acquired two Leica M cameras from an auction. One is a M3, the other is a M2. They both are cosmetically in pretty nice condition, but the viewfinder on each seems to have an issue. The M3 seems like it may have some separation going on and the focusing patch seems pretty dim. The frame lines for the 90mm seems permanently visible as well. The M2 has what looks like dark spot inside the viewfinder—I'm not sure that this could be. When you looks through the viewfinder it still seems bright and the patch is clearly visible. I'm wondering if anyone can help identify the issue and also let me know if you think it can be fixed. Other than the viewfinders, the cameras seems in really great shape. Hopefully a CLA can clear things up, or a recement. Thanks! Ross
  12. Hey all Who do you guys recommend in England that is actually still in business? I've got an iiig and need the speeds checked and the RF realigned (certainly vertically realigned) and also the "second image" in the RE is so ultra light/faded/barely visible too. Also, evidently i need to get my lens lubed although i have a feeling that isn't too difficult following a couple of YouTube videos? As always, thanks a lot!
  13. Anyone have a ballpark estimate/experience with approximate CLA cost for hazy 180mm f/3.4 APO-Telyt? There are many of these at bargain prices on eBay with haze or fungus.
