Trust your Leica repairs to a Solms/Wetzlar trained technician with the necessary tools to dismantle and service your Leica , be it a 1930's II or III or a modern-day Leica R camera or lens .

If your Leicaflex has a non-functional meter or the prism silvering has deteriorated the meter can be repaired and the prism replaced at a fraction of the normal cost associated with Leica  . We can replace the photocell , recalibrate the meter and re-silver the prism all for less than you would expect . Has your spool broken in your Leica R4 , have the foam light seals perished ? These can  these can be replaced for less £'s . Is it difficult to use the rangefinder on your Leica III , is the second image dim or hardly visible ? Then have the mirror or prism replaced to give a new lease of life and return the camera to it's original optical excellence . Do you have an M2 ,M3 or M4 with the viewfinder 'blacked out' and do not wish  to pay £600 or more to replace the rangefinder ? We can resilver the prism and restore the viewfinder to original condition for a fraction of the cost of a new rangefinder . (The factory can only supply M6J rangefinders at £ 850 as a replacement for M3).We do NOT charge VAT which means that you save 20 % on the repair cost straightaway .  Guarantees are for six months starting fourteen days after the invoice date. The list on the left gives an indication of the Leica cameras that we repair . New shutter blinds ,CL Rangefinder prisms , body-shell EM VULCANITE re-covering (exact match) , lens re-polishing and coating , re-cementing of optics. Refinishing of M and LTM cameras is available in black , grey or olive green enamel.Motor drive and winder are also repaired at the same rates without the repair costing more than the value of the equipment . We do not repair Leica autofocus cameras , Leicina or Pradovit , but we will   undertake the repair of Leica copies , ie. Kwanon , Nikon , Reid etc..
