Contax G2 shutter problem

My Contax G2 appears to have suffered a shutter problem and is in need of inspection and possible repair. Does anyone know of a suitable repair company in the UK that could undertake such work? The Contax site has a recommended repairer in Reading but they have advised they will send the camera to Japan! Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks. Bryan

would Fixation be able to fix it? They have a good reputation in our industry, they repaired my old Nikon AIS lens with no problem and not too expensive.

Thanks Peter. Tried them and they don't do it. I've decided to bite the bullet and use Alpha Digital who are the Contax official UK repairers. They confirmed that if I didn't accept the repair quote from Japan, they would return my camera at no cost. Pretty good I thought but expect it to take a while!
