Leica Screw and M mount lenses, non Aspherical: £179
Leica M mount lenses, Aspherical: £189
Zeiss ZM lenses, including the 35mm ZM Distagon: £169
Voigtlander VM and LTM lenses: £169
Please note: Thus far, we have found only two rangefinder lenses that can’t be done at the above price rates due to their complexity. The first is the Leica 50mm ASPH Summilux. The second is the Zeiss ZM 85mm f/2 Sonnar made in Germany (not to be confused with earlier Contax, Jena and Opton models).
Both lenses, due to their FLE design and multi helicoid implementation to drive said FLE, requires the usage of specialised tools and jigs to ensure the lens is disassembled and assembled correctly. We offer partial services for these lenses, which involve helicoid re-lubrication and general cleaning. We are not able to tend to any internal defects that may exist within the lenses optical stack up, especially near the FLE area at the moment, as this requires very specialised tooling.
Other lens designs that contain FLE’s, such as the Zeiss 35mm Distagon f/1.4 ZM lens, we have worked on without issue.

Full restorations: Contact us for a quote
Vintage lenses can be fully restored to new or beyond new condition. This includes body polishings and re-paintings, new font work, parts being remade or re-honed…etc.
6-Bit coding of existing M lens bayonet: £89ea, or three lenses for £220 (Special Group Pricing)
Not all lenses can be done, however most Zeiss ZM, Voigtlander VM and Leica M lenses can be. We can add 6-bit coding to lenses by removing the bayonet off the lens and placing it on our specially designed coding machine.
Lens re-fonting: £40 (best done during full service)
We can change the font colour of your lenses during servicing. What has become especially popular is our service to change the yellow fonts on Leica lenses to red. We can also touch-up and fill existing fonts that have become worn or tarnished over time.
Colours on offer: White, Black, Red
Custom Finger Tab: £120 – £150
Let us know your focus finger size at the joint just below your fingernail. We can make a custom finger focus tab, and provide 3M VHB tape to bond the tab onto your lens. Alternatively, the tab can be screwed onto most lenses at our workshop. We can make the tab in either lightweight aircraft aluminium or heavier brass. The tab then gets polished down to a mirror-like finish.
Optional painting of the tab is also possible, as well as coloured anodising. Contact us for more info.
Complete conversions: For Contax lenses, like 50mm an 85mm Sonnars, we have a few solutions on offer. 50mm pre-war Jena lenses can have their optical blocks transplanted into post-war soviet bodies, that have undergone a full restoration. 85mm Contax Sonnars can have a special Contax RF to Leica M helicoid installed to take the Contax movement 52.4mm and translate it to Leica movement 51.6mm standards.
