Some explanation about repair cost. As you can see prices are fixed. It mean you pay fixed price, and total for repair never exceed this price. It mean you will never get bad surprice like "ahh, camera is very bad inside and I need more money for my hard work". If camera had a hidden problem - it's my problem now. You pay fixed price for getting working camera back.
There is only one exception - if your camera have a missing exterior parts. Putting new parts for FSU cameras cost nothing, but some exterior parts for Contaxes and Leicas may cost additional money. Anyway, exterior parts are easy to see! You will see for what you pay.
