Re-housing older lenses

Gareth Roberts
 

I'm wondering about the quality of some of the lesser known or cheaper lens re-housers.  I have some lenses that would benefit from a re-housing and adapting to PL mount but my budget is limited.  Does anyone know of the quality of Kim Camera's work out of Korea? Or does anyone have any suggestions for lens re-housers?

Thanks,

Hi Gareth,

Try Sim Mod - Sarorn Ron Sim. Google him or find him on facebook. Based out of Windsor Canada. I've not personally had him rehouse lenses but we used ones he had worked on and they were great, smooth Iris and proper focus gears on the barrel, and he rotates the lens mount by 90 degrees so your focus puller can see the indicator on the side of the lens.

Hello,
If you looking for somebody to re house some lenses for you contact Anna Piffl at P+S in Munch Germany.  annapifflpstechnik.de. They have done lenses forl Clairmont Camera and did a fine job at a fair price.
