Can you recommend a UK repair centre

Hi I have a well used 645 80-1670 F4.5 zoom which needs servicing as there is dust on the internal elements. Can anyone recommend a UK based service centre that I can get this done at.

Many Thanks

I have had good experiences with Cameratiks in Edinburgh, if you want a second quote: Camera Repairs

I had a CSJ Flektogon cleaned for a very fair price.

I can echo the above comments...Johnsons photopia are ok but very very very slow. But to be fair job done excellently!

I think it is the lag in the Pentax supply chain rather than Johnsons, it was the wait for parts which made the repair take so long....
