You should go down and meet stephen in person. He is a nice chap and a good listener. His prices are competitive and the turnaround speed is great. Well, thats from my experience at least. It really depends what you want him to repair. If its an antique item, you may have to give him enough time to source for parts from overseas.
He performs his own repairs and so you will be getting first hand info from a technician instead.
Chat up with him, and if you feel comfortable placing your equipment with him, go right ahead.
I sent my lense for cleaning few months back. Was told the fungus was very bad and he had to change 1 element. After the job (together with quite many lenses) I took it all back, put in my filter protector and forgot about it.
Yesterday while looking at it carefully I realised it's badly smeared....as if the coating is gone or very dirty inside.....sigh. Need to go back and find him. But seems like his operating hours are erratic. Haven't been able to get answered on calls to his shop....
