    Re: m9 back focusing

    Hi there,

    I had some lenses and camera sent in last year. It was about $260 for a lens, and I think my M9 was still under warranty. I believe I heard/read recently they were doing price increases to about $300 or $330? (maybe that is the six bit coding price increase I heard about)

    But before you send it in, you should confirm if it is the lens or camera, IE does it do the same thing on more than one lens? The more detail you can describe the better. I has one lens focus close up ok, but beyond a certain distance it progressively got worse, they fixed it, but it is good to explain what you are seeing. Sometimes with photo examples.

    Also the price I paid was for Lens CLA, if you have parts or other things needed, then the price could be higher.

    I have found them friendly and helpful, it would be worth it to phone and ask them what your options are and estimate pricing.

    All the best,
    Dave

    I ve had more than a dozen lenses calibrated and at least 5 bodies . Anything out of warranty goes to DAG . Send him your M9 and ask for it back in a month . It will be faster ,cheaper and with way less hassle .
