Hexar repair

Know someone with a Hexar that takes perfectly good sharp pictures, but looking thru the viewfinder all appears blurred. Can anyone recomend a place in the NYC area for repairs?

Greg is the pretty much the best Hexar tech on the planet.

Good Luck!

Hey adam,

I took my two hexars to photo tech on 13th street. Ph 212-673-8400
sony has now taken over the repair side of the business so it may take a little longer to get it back.

I would be wary of Photo Tech. I had a Hexar repaired there that failed months later for the same reason it was fixed— faulty auto wind.

My cameras weren’t actually repaired by Photo tech. They were sent back to Konica Minolta through Photo tech.

Perhaps I kept my last too brief.

Are you shooting an RF or an AF?

In suggesting Greg Weber, I must hasten to add that he trained all the techs at Konica/Minolta. He does Hexar work for a few NG photogs.

Now that the K/M repair service has all been outsourced to Sony, they will think a Hexar is an oracle from a Harry Potter book. A huge caveat on that. You’d be playing roulette with them.

I haven’t spoken with Greg recently as I’m shooting Leica’s exclusively, however, he has a bid tendered for all the diagnostics and parts from the old K/M faclity. You’d have to check with Greg to see if his bid was successful.

If it’s a rangefinder patch alignment issue in the Hexar RF, he machines his own brass gears to replace the OEM plastic ones. If it’s a re-silvering issue, I’d go with Greg on that, too.

Best of luck…

I’m guessing it’s the fixed lens Hexar. Did you open the top to see what’s what?
