The most common lens repairs:
• Autofocus (AF) adjustment - the so-called front focus or back focus
The service consists in the correction of any AF deviations affecting the precise focusing, such as FF (Front Focus) or BF (Back Focus), i.e. focusing in front of or behind the lens. We recommend that you deliver the whole set to the service center, i.e. the camera body with the lens that causes the problem.

• Optical system adjustment
The service consists in the adjustment of the optical axis of the lens. The symptom of the fault of this type can be a decrease of the image focus (colloquially referred to as blurring) across the whole frame or lack of focus on one side of the photo.
• AF motor repair
When the lens makes alarming noises (e.g. screeching), operates in leaps or the autofocus stops working completely, it will probably be necessary to repair or replace the control components or the drive system.
• Lens cleaning
Omnipresent dust, unsealed structures or extreme conditions can lead to the contamination of the external lenses and of the inside of the lens body. In our service center, the cleaning is performed in a special dust-free chamber.
