I have taken mine to Lehman's in Stoke on Trent - I am not aware of an authorised serice centre in Manchester.
Thanks for the reply Mike - did you find them to be any good?
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.
all i would say is if it ain't broke don't fix it !
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
