Vintage Visuals Lens Repair - Canada

I am a happy Canadian.

I just received back my beloved M 400 f/5.6 from Vintage Visuals Photographic in Calgary, Alberta http://VintageVisuals.com. For C$91.88 including shipping and tax, they "Pentax 400mm service (repair the lock knob, clean". The aperture blades were a bit sluggish and the tripod shoe slipped around the lens. The lens looks and works like new.

Thanks, Tim!

Welcome back Canada.

You have been quite low key on the forum ever since you sent the lens off. We are all glad its back safe and sound. Hope to see some 400mm wildlife shots posted tomorrow from you.

That’s good to know they repair stuff as well as sell. I have only bought Pentax gear from them and they are great!

Albert: Would you consider adding a review of Vintage Visuals Photographic and a link to their website to the Forum "Camera Repair and Service" Directory?

Here's a link to the sub-forum if you have never been there Camera Repair and Service

Update:

Looks like they recently closed, website down and phone out of service?

Sad Vintage Visuals was a really good used camera store.
