    I have taken mine to Lehman's in Stoke on Trent - I am not aware of an authorised serice centre in Manchester.

    I took a 24-70 F2.8L for a service they Quoted 70 + vat when it was stripped down the price went too 350 + vat, the fact is the lens wasn't that bad I thought at 6 years old a check up was in order.

    After I got it back it was that bad just gone off slowly so I didn't notice, that was 2 years back and it's been great since.

    Any reason for specifying Manchester?
    If you are prepared to send it by post/courier then AJ Johnstone in Glasgow are very good & reasonably prices.

    I thought they were good, boony. I live in S Manchester and drove it down there myself and diverted via Buxton to take some photos.

    I'm only saying Manchester because this is where I live, I would much rather be face to face with any vendor and also drop off/pick up in person as I used to be a postman and know exactly how parcels get treated! Thanks for the replies, really do appreciate everyone taking the time to answer.

    It is broke Colin, some grease has escaped from somewhere and is making the aperture blades stick - it's OK at F4 but when I put it in professional mode it changes the aperture on it's own. lol
