For those that have expensive Hexanon lenses and wish to have it reconditioned to new, I have some great news for you!

I recently bought a 57mm f1.2 lens in average condition that I wanted restored to Like New condition both in optics and mechanics. So I took it to a store whose owner has worked in the Konica repair factory years ago and is probally one of the most knowlegable on Konica items in Alberta, Canada.

So, he took apart my Hexanon 57mm f1.2 lens and is replacing key components of it that are worn or needs to be replaced. He still has connections at the Konica factory for RARE parts! I know the the lens will be getting new ball berrings, and a new apateur ring as well, right from the Konica factory! As well the lens will be full cleaned inside and out, refocused back to manufacturer specs and a full CLA as well on it! Sounds great eh!

While this lens will I am sure be just as good as new, it isn't cheap. The service cost $200. But since it will be a $500 lens, it isn't a bad investment. So if you want your lens to be reconditioned, let me know.

That is a lot of money, real or otherwise!


Did you save the money to recondition that lens by complaining about one or two dollar differences in eBay auction shipping charges on $10 Sigma lenses?... That is $10 period.

USD is represented by the symbol $, which was originally a U and a S combined. CANADIAN dollars are just that, Canadian DOLLARS.

Ha Ha, Old Pal!
