Canon 200mm 1.8 repair
Carroll Wood, Photographer
Bonne Terre | MO | USA | Posted: 1:22 PM on 06.21.06
->> I recently needed repair work on my Canon 200mm 1.8, it had a problem with the tripod collar not locking into place.

What this post is about is Mid-States Camera Repair in Rhode Island. Most all owners of the 200mm 1.8 always have this fear in the back of their mind regarding when and if repairs are needed to this top level no longer serviced lens.

Mark and Kieth and Mid-States repaired the lens, (they had to do some digging around), communicated quick and often during the repair and when all was done even charged me less than the original quote.

So for anybody needing service on thier Canon 200mm 1.8, or for any other lens for that matter, I give my highest recommendation to Mid-States Camera Repair.

This is why I use MidState for almost all my repairs.

They are quick, reliable, not terribly expensive, able to work on older gear and both of them are just really nice guys

The shop even has a nice local restaurant down the block where you can eat while you wait for your bodies to be cleaned!

How can you beat that?

Two brothers, Keith and Mark, run the shop and are fantastic. Keith usually answers the phone, but at times Mark seems to get it (usually when Keith is not there).

Tell 'em I sent you.

->> The only probelm I had with Mid-States is that they are Red Sox fans. Being from St Louis the burn still lingers.

Steven ... it may have been one of your posts from way back that directed to me to them in the first place - thanks.
