    Fixing balsam separation

    I was wondering if anyone still offers re-cementing services to individuals, and how much such a service might cost? I have a 300mm f/5.6 Symmar that has some front element edge separation, and if it's not too expensive I wouldn't mind getting it fixed.

    Simon, I repair lens separation from time to time and can help you. If I can get the lens out then I can repair it. I am a lens designer by profession. Send me a message.

    Cheers,
    Jason
