Most Canon rangefinder lenses have old outgassing lubricants that create haze on the optics over time. To rectify this issue, we only offer a “full restoration” price on these lenses, so that they can be completely dismantled and every part ultrasonically cleaned to remove all traces of the old lubricant.
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: £129 (10% discount for 3 or more lenses in the same order).
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.
In-house 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
Finger Sticks: £120 – £150
We can make a custom finger focus stick which can be screwed onto most lenses at our workshop. We can also engrave initials on the end of the stick. We can make the sticks from either lightweight aircraft aluminium or heavier brass.
Optional painting of the stick is also possible. Contact us for more info.
