Hexanon 45-100/3.5

I just discovered this forum, and already have gleaned some useful tips...thanks!

I have a Hexanon 45-100/3.5 zoom lens that has a sticky aperture. Any suggestions on where I could have the lens repaired? Any idea of the cost?

I haven't used this lens much, and I noticed on the Wulff Photography page the 45-100/3.5 was described as "a very expensive quite compact lens of not particularly good performance." I would like to hear any opinions from this group.

greg weber will be able to fix your 45-100/3.5 for you.

for what it's worth, greg says the 45-100 is an amazing lens and that anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what they are talking about (or never actually used it). he sells them for 275-495, by the way.

I sent the 45-100mm lens to greg weber, and he did an excellent repair. Shot two rolls of film when I got it back, and I am very pleased with the result.

We should consider ourselves fortunate to have a knowledgeable and skilled person like Greg Weber available.

yes indeed. just today i bought a T3-n from him (after getting a couple of real stinkers from ebay that luckily i was able to return). for the extra money, it is definately worth the piece of mind of him checking it over, recalibrating the meter, cleaning it, and the 6 month warranty. he also runs a test roll of film through the camera before shipping. my feeling is that with such old cameras it really is worth it to have them checked out carefully to make sure they work properly.
