    Recoating or multicoating a Plasmat

    I have a chance to buy a rarity, which ostensibly has only a coating defect. In addition to coating, the front elements of this Plasmat will also need de-cemented and re-cemented, I expect (Is that an accurate assumption?).

    Is there anyone left still standing that does a good job of this in the USA? What should I expect to pay for this?

    Need responses ASAP before I take the plunge, thanks!

    Ivan,

    John van Stelton at Focal Point.

    There is some risk to the lens though.

    Cheers, Steve

    Odds are that you can buy one in good shape for less than Focal Point will charge for dismantling, polishing, and recoating. But check.
