Subject: [Leica] Solms repair service

I called Solms today and here is a transcript of the conversation:

Good morning, this is Chris Almqvist in Hamburg. I have a Summicron that
needs cleaning and ...

- -  Is that a lens mady by us?

Yes it is. It has dirt on one or more of the inside lens surfaces. Can you
clean it, how much will it cost and how long will it take?

- -  We never quote any prices before we have seen the lens. A cost estimate
will take about a week. If you send in your camera today, it will probably
arrive here on Friday, but I doubt we will open the parcel until next week
because the mail gets here so late in the day.....

And how long will the repair take?

- - About four to six weeks.

How long?

- - Well you must understand that this is our holiday season.

Thank you for the information  and goodbye.


I found a little shop downtown who has somebody do this type of work for
them. Bring the lens by tuesday night and you can collect it on friday
morning, they said. Cost will be less than $80.
