    who can repair a Hasselblad 110/2 FE lens?

    I have an FE 110mm f/2 whose aperture blades no longer close / stop down. Does anyone know who can work on this? I emailed with Hasselblad NJ, and they say Sweden can't work on it.

    My first thought was David Odess. I emailed him.

    thanks

    Yes, David Odess comes to mind. You might also try Bob Watkins at Precision Camera Works (https://www.precisioncameraworks.com). He recently moved to Northern California from the Chicago area. Not sure who's open during these shelter in place times but worth an inquiry.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks -- I've worked with Bob before and will give him a try. FYI David Odess can't service the FE lenses.

    Still taking more suggestions. Thank you.

    David Odess will not touch anything with F in the name ;-), even if the issue is mechanical.

    Jurgen -- thank you. I ended up receiving this same suggestion on photo.net. I emailed him, and he is working on either securing or fabricating the part.

    best,

    Another repairman you can try is Wico Jansen in The Netherlands (http://www.hasselblad-reparaties.nl) Tel +31 610708324.

    He is an expert. Fixed my 30 mm CF by manufacturing an unavailable part from scratch. He also worked on my Hasselblads for yers and always produced top notch work at reasonable prices. However, not sure he works on F lenses. Worth an email in my opinion.

    I had Steve fix my 180/4, it was cheap and well done. He is factory trained and was a certified Hassy repair station.
