SMC-F 1.7x AF Adapter repair? Not C.R.I.S.

Hi,

I have a 1.7x AF adapter that may have a cracked internal element and needs an overall cleaning & "tuneup". I called C.R.I.S. to see if they could perform the service & what they would charge. Unbelievably they told me that they've never had one come to them for service. Has anyone had to send theirs in? If you did could you tell me where & how much it cost you?

Thanks very much,

George

Mine has a broken AF gear. I took it to a local place, they shrugged and gave it back. (Although they charged me $5 for the estimate, which was "we can't do anything" - I haven't been back since.) I also sent it to Eric Hendrickson, and he managed a temporary fix that lasted a few months. He might be able to clean yours and tune it up, but I doubt anyone has or can get parts for a cracked internal element. I had been thinking about sending it to CRIS, they told me they couldn't do anything to replace the glass but could maybe look at the AF mechanism. Sounded like a stretch, so I skipped it. I can use mine as a manual focus 1.7X TC,

Of course, between the two of us we could assemble a perfect one. Let me know if you decide to give up on yours!
