Re: beercan with a stuck aperture

Thanks for the help. If you read my question more closely you may have picked up the "one of my beercans" part. I was hoping someone new might have some recommendations about a repair shop. C.W.

beercan with a stuck aperture

Where is a place in the US that could work on one of my beercans with a stuck aperture? Please don't suggest I do it myself. My attempts at these kind of things always end in disaster. C. W.

Re: Which is your most used / favourite lens(es)?

I use the beercan a lot, my 50 1.7 and believe it or not the old kit lens comes in handy sometimes. A few days ago I gave the 24-85 a good workout and will sometimes use my Sigma 24 2.8. They all do a great job but there is just something about the old beercan that I love. The colors are absolutely ...

Re: beercan with stuck aperture

Who knows? I'm not going to find out. I can just see myself sitting there with a bunch of parts strewed all over the place and no way of making them fit back together. I've been there before and have no desire to go back. C. W.

Re: beercan with stuck aperture

O hell, I thought I had my man. I bet you could do it though Sinolta if you wanted to spend the time on one of your own lens. It looks like a pain in the butt though. I have neither the patience, tools, or natural mechanical aptitude for this kind of work. I was hoping somebody knew someone who did ...

Re: beercan with stuck aperture

I live in Florence, Ms. just south of Jackson. We have one camera shop in this area and they won't work on any product that they don't carry. They sell Canon, Nikon, olympus, and Pentax. There are no other place locally and perhaps not in the whole state of Mississippi. I did call KEH and they quote...

beercan with stuck aperture

Where can I get this lens repaired in the USA? Please don't suggest that I should do it myself since I am a total loser at fixing almost anything and don't own the tools for this kind of work. My local camera store either can't or won't work on it since they sell every make of DSLR except Sony. What...

Re: Hello from Florence, Mississippi

Thanks for the welcome. I am just south of Jackson, Ms. the state capital. New Orleans is quite close less than 3 hours drive. The old river towns of Vicksburg and Natchez are really photo heaven for this area. The Mississippi delta is also a place for photography. Beautiful sunsets, tremendous weal...
