Repair recommendation for Pentax ES II


Link Posted 02/03/2014 - 12:39
Hi comrades,

I have a Pentax ES II camera that is in need of a good repair. I don't want to hand it over to a quick and dirty repair man, I am looking for someone who will do the job right.

Are there any recommendations for such repair centres/people within the UK? If you have any relevant experience to share, then by all means please do so.

The best options for a UK repair are likely to be Harrow Technical link or Asahi Photo link. Spares are likely to be an issue though - depending on the problem.

I've recently had an LX repaired by Harrow Technical and it seems very good (haven't got results back from it yet).

The main problem with the ES and ESII is the lack of spares. If Robin at Harrow Technical cannot do it, Eric Hendrickson in Tennessee has some of the few remaining parts. He fixed up my ESII beautifully.

Best wishes, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
