	I recently had a collapsible 50 summicron in bayonet mount and a second in
screw mount done by John VanStelton.  The screw mount lens really looked
gross.  I just got it back and it's beautiful.  You really can't tell that
there were huge wipe marks in the coating before it went out.  Cost was
about $250 and John is a pleasure to deal with.  Makes the lenses work like
new again.  I'd recommend it.
