Got a few similar quotes to replace the front element on one of my lenses, just wondering if anyone had any personal experience of...

Thomas Camera Services Ltd - www.thecameracentre.com

and

Colchester Camera Repair Web Enquiry - www.camera-repair.co.uk


They're both on the canon register, just wondering how fast they were etc.

I have used the Colchester people. They did a service on my 40D. Very prompt very courteous and totally satisfactory. I have not used them for lens repair, but if they maintain the same standards in that department, then I would have no hesitation in using them again.

Had my 1Ds repaired by Fixation in the past, they are now a major repair shop with a over 20 techies. When I snapped my 16-35 I sent it to Canon and was pleasantly surprised by the price.
