Rough Cost of Lens repair (and place to do it)

So I'm trying to find out (before buying a lens), what's the rough cost of servicing/repairing the lens. It's a Super Takumar 85mm f1.9 lens. The lens has a small bug inside it.

So ROUGHLY how much should it cost to repair and is there anywhere in South Florida that you guys would recommend to have it done?

Eric is probably the best and cheapest. Here is his website, which has an email link.

You will need to factor in shipping costs also, both there and back. For the A 50 I had him clean and repair, the total shipping cost was around $20.
