who fixes lenses besides Precision

Hi, I have a fa77 that won't focus (ring doesn't turn all the way) and a couple lenses that would be good to see if the decentering can be fixed. Also a da35 that won't focus to infinity. Not upset, really, the 77 and the decentered lenses were used a LOT and traveled frequently and the 35 was annodized and I didn't send it back to get adjusted. But, I'd really like to see these lenses work...

Not sure if the DA12-24 and DFA 24-70 need special equipment to fix the decentering though...

Anyways, if there are some folks that are good at this kind of work, I'd love to see if they are available.

Thanks,
Mike

There's a list here:
Pentax Repair Facilities (Wordwide listing) - PentaxForums.com

Eric may be able to help with the 77mm. As for the decentering, it may be best to use Precision for that.

Specialized equipment is needed to repair decentering.

The problem is outside of needing specialized equipment is that Ricoh will only sell parts to Precision. Precision will not sell parts. So if the repair needs parts you either have to scrounge for parts on the used market or send the lens to Precision. And many times Precision will send the lens to Japan for the parts and repair.
