    If what the shutter needs is a Clean, Lube and Adjust (CLA) and it costs about $100 for the repair, I would think that would be a good way to go. The way I look at it most of the lens/shutter combinations we are using these days are many, many years old. I expect any of the old lenses I buy might need a CLA. If you buy another one, will it be any better? I usually go the repair route first if the cost is reasonable, then you know you can use it for a long time to come.
