    Servicing large format lens

    Hi all hope you don't mind me crashing your board. I haven't done any large format photography for a long time, but I still have a couple of lenses that I'd completely forgotten about until clearing out my store cupboard.

    One is a 90mm Nikkonor and the other is 150mm Schneider.

    I do remember that the shutter is broken on the 90mm as the last time I used it I had to use it in complete darkness.

    Is it possible to fix this?
    If so how much will it cost?
    Where could I get it fixed?
    And if it was fixed how much would it be worth to sell s/h?

    Lastly what sort of value would the 150mm Schneider be worth and also where could I go to get them checked out.

    I live quite close to London, so any shops or repair workshops within that area would be great.

    Thanks for your time

    Oops just noticed the lens forum - sorry wrong forum... mods please move if possible.

    Hi, you could try Teamwork in the West End. They have a technician who visits several times a week who will be able to tell you what is wrong, and how much it is likely to cost to fix it. They will also be able to give you a price for the lenses as they sell secondhand equipment.

    Sorry, but I assumed London, UK. You'll have to find another dealer I'm afraid. My apologies.
