Eric at Pentax camera Service

Just got my MX back from Eric at Pentax Camera Sevice. It got a CLA and he fixed the self timer the flash contacts ,calabrated the shutter and new light seals. The camera looks and functions like new. Great job and I'm glad there's still a craftsman like Eric that works on your camera as f it were his. Good for another 20 years.

Eric has fixed an Asahi Pentax SV for me, and he's also refurbed 2 lenses: A SMC Pentax-A 50mm F/1.4 and a Super-Takumar 135mm F/3.5, both of which had some isssues. They work like brand new, now.

He's getting my MX and my fiancee's ME Super soon.

Eric does great work

I just had Eric do 3 Spotmatics and a ME Super - great work at a very reasonable price. I just mailed him another ME Super, my backup, for a CLA and to fix an issue with the aperture mechanism in the body. We are very fortunate to have his services.

I'm really enjoying my MX and LX after they took the trip to TN. The MX was not working this well the last few years I was using it in the 80s.
