An old boss of mine gave me an old 35mm Minolta he purchased in the 70's. Came with a 50mm 1.7 lens!

I messed with it a bit. Some of the shutter speeds were sticking a bit. Also, what I believe to be the mirror damper sorta shakes/rattles, I don't think it is supposed to be that way.

I'd like to send it off for CLA and any repair. This is a sentimental camera to me now and I'd like it in good working order.

I found one repair shop, which I won't name, that I was going to use. However, upon Googling their name, I found quite a bit of evidence showing shady practices as a whole. That was over a decade ago. So just asking for someone really good to send this to, who can hopefully get it going great again.

Contacting. His website still seems to insinuate he does repairs, and he does have an active Ebay store. Hopefully I will hear back from him. If he falls through for any reason, is there someone else to look into?

Dead Link Removed can do CLAs. They have done some delicate and technical camera and lens repairs for me. They did have a back log the last time I used them.

Dave Feeley at Key Camera Service in Longmont CO has done great work for me, Minolta and Zeiss. I'm planning to send him an SRT-201 for CLA and battery conversion.

I believe Zacks camera repair is a Forum Sponsor.?
I used them for an Oly OM3 and a Canon A-Series. They seemed Very Honest and Capable.

I have also used John T. and was happy with him as well.
