  • Lens Optics

    Although minor dust and scratching won't affect image quality, major defects like haze, fungus, or separation cause decreased sharpness and contrast. We inspect every lens and provide cleaning & repair when appropriate. Otherwise, we clearly state any flaws in lens optics in our product descriptions.

  • Lens Mechanics

    Our skilled team of technicians also work diligently to ensure that our lenses have appropriately functioning mechanics. They test focal throw, zoom, aperture stop-down, filter threads, and all applicable electronic functions (like autofocus).

  • Infinity Focusing & Rangefinder Alignment

    Our collimator is used to simulate infinity focus for the purpose of ensuring lens alignment & focus at any distance. We also use a special high-contrast target board to ensure that rangefinders are properly aligned both vertically & horizontally.

  • Calibration & Repair

    Many lenses require extra work beyond testing & checking. Our mechanics are able to repair lens diaphragms, calibrate focus, adjust helicoids, and install spare or replacement parts as necessary.
