Can anyone recommend a service in the US to disassemble, clean, and lube a Hexanon 57/1.2? In traveling a couple of black specks turned up inside and are visible. I think more distracting then dust.

Due to the cost/rarity of the lens, I think it might be worth having the lens professionally serviced and cleaned internally.

Thanks,

Q

I kow this is no use to you, but for any UK based users I have used the 'lens doctor' Eddie Houston, based in cumbernauld, scotland.
I had a Konica 57mm 1.4 with a oily sticky diaphram, sent to Eddie, he stripped it, cleaned all the elements, took all the old grease out, cleaned the diaphram, reassembled and regreased and test charts. Super job 4 day turnaround and £35 + £2.75 return postage.
Its now like a new lens and lovely contrast.
