    Do you service and clean Minolta AF lenses? If so, I apparently have mould and/or haze in my Minolta AF 28-135mm F/4-4.5 ‘Secret Handshake’ lens. How much would this cost? As for the 10% off sensor cleaning voucher you currently have, is the price listed inclusive or the discount and VAT or not? I would also consider sending my A850 for a service/clean to include the focus screen. If all this could be done, I’d like a costing please. TIA.

    • Hi, yes, we do service and clean Minolta lenses. Please call on 01908 378088, for further information. The normal price for sensor clean is £30, or £35 for Full Frame Pro Camera. There is no additional VAT, but postage charges apply. The discount voucher gives you 10% off the normal price, hope this helps.

        Thanks for the reply. Would you be able to give the A850 focus screen a clean as well as the sensor as it has ingress in the corners and I’m not sure how to clean this properly? I was hoping to replace it with an L Type screen, but these are now too expensive new (they were £15.00), so unless you have a used one knocking around somewhere that could be swapped over . . . .

        I also find the sensor keeps producing moisture blobs even though it’s stored in my camera bag at room temperature and has a silica gel pack in there as well. Most annoying when using for the first time post cleaning to see blobs in the sky (I shoot aviation with a Min AF 300/2.8 HS G). I do have both wet and dry sensor cleaning kits, but thought maybe a pro clean and check would be a sensible thing to do (do you also use any form of anti-static dust cleaning in the lens chamber as part of the service)?

        I will call you for an overall costing. Thank you.
