Customer references

I have an exceptional customer satisfaction record. The following people are some of my customers from all over the world. They can be contacted upon request.

John B Crane, Fort Collins, United States : "When I initially purchased my F2S from a third party with an inoperable meter, the rest of the camera was in good enough condition to warrant keeping it - primarily because I knew you could restore everything to full working order. From the photos provided during your repair process, working on these old instruments looks a little like brain surgery. Thank goodness you have the experience, tools, knowledge and attention to detail to do such finely detailed work. Experiencing these wonderful precision instruments in better-than-new condition 40+ years after their manufacture is a treat beyond compare.

David Zietz, Baton Rouge, United States : "I highly recommend getting a Nikon F2 overhauled by Sover. Sover is the only F2 repair person that has new parts that he can install to actually extend the life of the camera finder. This means that if you take good care of the camera, it should last easily another 40 years which makes it one of the biggest bargains in a camera that you can find anywhere! 24 January 2017”

Once I received the camera and held it in my hands, it was incredible - the camera is better than new! Everything works crisply and exactly the way it should. The meter is dead on and the LEDs are very bright. Sover is a true craftsman and I recommend him to anyone with an F2! Thank you, Sover! 12 January 2017”

Markus Pohjola, Helsinki, Finland : "I ran a roll of Tri-X through it just to test the metering button you added and what can I say: its simply amazing, with or without a motordrive.

And I know you don't do many red LED installs, but I really love the red! It sounds like micro-surgery to do this modification--NICE JOB! Best of all, film advance lever looks great! Hot shoe looks great! And a quick run through of a few shutter speeds was so satisfying--the camera sounds utterly sublime! I know I sent you basically a box of parts. So much work to do. And the photo updates made me feel like I was part of the process. You are a genius! A true craftsman! Dare I say it...an artist! 9 April 2013”

Stefan Kahlert , Taunusstein, Germany : "The work you did to my F2SB more than met my high expectations. After replacing the ring-resistor and your calibration of the DP-3 meter, this camera has the most precise meter of the several Nikons I own and is second only to my Gossen Profisix with its even wider range. I also like the brighter red LED in the finder a lot and think this is how it should have been right from the factory. The camera was in excellent shape when it arrived with all external parts clean and flawless and all details like reglueing the front covering of the prism - which was only slightly warped at the edges - taken care of. The camera was no question cosmetically better than it was when I send it to you. This is one of the rare occasions for me where the result of a repair in my personal view leaves nothing to be desired. I also appreciated your responsiveness to questions and how fast and predictably everything was done. 5 April 2013”

Kevin Yates, Ashtead, United Kingdom : "It feels amazing in use, smooth easy wind on, the shutter 'sounds' better (even though it was accurate previously, it sounded laboured). All mechnanical functions are very smooth and the optics spotless and free of blemishes & haze. The DP2 finder now works through the whole range and matches my Sekonic handheld meter at low levels having been woefully inaccurate due to a failed cds cell.

Roderick Gordon, Fakenham, United Kingdom : "Sover serviced my favourite F2 with a DP-2 head, and also an MD-2 which I'd rather given up hope on when it malfunctioned years ago. As he stripped each item down, he sent me detailed forensic reports, including photographs - it's fascinating to peer at the guts inside each piece of kit, and rather like unraveling the history of neglect each of them must have endured. When the camera and motor drive arrived back after only a week, it wasn't only that they'd been given a new lease of life, but they felt and looked as they must have done when they first left the shop - everything operated crisply and cleanly. Sover was even able to polish out on a scratch on the DS coupler of the DP-2 so that the unit appeared brand new again. I really can't recommend Sover enough if you're thinking of having your beloved Nikon F2 or any related equipment overhauled - you'll be in the safest hands possible as his expertise and experience are unrivalled. 11 October 2011”

Geoff Adolph, Fairfield, Australia : "Everything working fine. Many thanks. 6 June 2011”

James Hollings, Wellington, New Zealand : "I asked advice on problems with my Dp2 Photomic head. Sover was great - instead of trying to sell me a new one, he first got me to check whether it was a simple problem with the F2 body. Only once we had established it wasn't, did he recommend different options. He outlined clearly the advantages of each, without trying to steer me one way. We decided on a Dp3, of 8.5 quality rating, as the best fit. The goods arrived in New Zealand only about 1 week after my payment arrived, beautifully wrapped. It works beautifully, exactly as promised, and I am very pleased with it. I was also really pleased with his quick response to emails with questions about Nikons. 4 June 2011”

Kenneth Waters, Cardiff, United Kingdom : "Imaging the scenario. You have one or perhaps several F2's in your collection. You have one 'special one' that is minty and is your favourite. You have never had it serviced because you don't trust anyone messing around with it; i.e. "If it isn't bust, leave well alone". Then you notice that the foam seals are looking in need of replacement. The simple and cost effective method would be to buy a kit and replace them yourself. However, you decide that perhaps the best option is to send your camera to a professional for a 'CLA'. If this is what you decide, then there is probably only one person who can do this, a person that has the necessary expertise, knowledge and spare parts and this is Sover Wong. Mr Wong recommends a standard service which is far beyond a 'CLA'. Don't make the mistake of thinking that because a F2 is in a mint/excellent cosmetic condition that this will be reflected in the 'hidden' interior. As I have recently found out, external condition is no indicator of problems that may be lurking unknowingly with the internal mechanisms and electronics. I recently sent my minty F2S for a standard service to Mr Wong (my fourth F2 service) and the list of 'horrors' from shutter bounce, failed speeds, inaccurate Photomic Head readings, corroded contacts, etc. was extensive and rather frightening. Fortunately for me (and for the rest of you), Mr Wong can work his magic and return the F2 to you in "rebuilt and as new" condition. You can expect problems with a F2 that has a hard life but as I have found out, age is also an important factor even if has been well looked after. The moral of this story, if you have an F2 and you treasure it as a faithful companion, get Mr Wong to service it as it will repay you over and over again for years into the future, in the knowledge that you have and use a living classic. 4 June 2011 (repeat customer)”

A few years ago I lent the camera to a relative who was taking a photography course. Last year it was returned and it was clearly not right. You have managed to restore it to superb silky smooth working condition.

Jonathan Takeuchi, Tokyo, Japan : " I work for a large multi-national consulting corporation and my particular company is not cheap to hire but we Martin de la Nougerede, Dorking, United Kingdom : pride ourselves on our high levels of communication and willingness to go the extra mile. It's a tough sell to customers since they could easily hire one of our rivals at a much lower cost, but I personally think our expertise in our field makes us worth it. I think Sover's service is not unsimilar to the one that my company provides. I must admit, I was not enthaustic about paying so much to get my F2T serviced, but I'm glad I did and I'm glad I sent it to Sover. Here's why: his communication is outstandin/bg - no question is too stupid, no request is outrageous and relpies come very quickly. I wish I could write more about how good his repair job was, but honestly I'm not sure how my camera functioned before (I bought it off ebay and shipped it right off), but Sover's communication and expertise gives me the confidence that everything in the camera is working okay and now my F2T the camera that I pick up when I want to go shoot film. 6 April 2009”

Pedro Silva, Surfside , United States : "I've been lusting for a F2 for quite some time, my teenager's dream, and in the research process, I found Sover's Website and spent a lot of time here. Hence my decision to have my camera serviced by Sover Wong precedes the camera itself. After finally acquiring my first F2, actually a F2A manufactured in 1977, I sent to Sover without shooting a single roll of film. What a pleasure! Sover kept me informed every step of the way through e-mail and I was amazed by the cameras history he was able to dig from its guts. When I got it back, very fast turn around by the way, I fed it with a roll of Ilford B&W film and the first click of the shutter almost made me cry. That beautifully engineered machine was back to its glory. These babies are pretty addictive and it's great to know there's a guy in this planet enthusiastically devoted to keep them shooting. Thanks Sover. 22 August 2008”

Bob Fowler, Middletown, United States : "The DP-11 nightlight and MB-1 front release are FANTASTIC! Your careful attention to detail and superb craftsmanship is evident every time I press the shutter release.

I had two F2 outfits serviced, each with a motor drive and Photomic meter. You fixed multiple "small problems" with each outfit. Aside from the repairs, I noticed that the film advance is smoother and easier than before. I love the LED that you installed in my DP-1 meter. It's like a "poor man's DP11." And I was frankly astounded both the meticulous repairs themselves and at the level of detail that you provided on the repairs necessary for each item, complete with excellent photos. I have never experienced this level off customer service from anyone - not an auto repair shop, not an appliance repair. It reminds me of my visits to my dentist, who shows me the xrays of my teeth when he discusses treatments. I only wish I had more F2 outfits that needed service! I will be pleased to serve as a reference for your outstanding work. 7 December 2006”

Jim Ostrowski, New York, United States : "Once again, another expert servicing, resulting in dependable, silky-smooth, quiet body mechanisms, and the finder of course is right on the money!

I now have only one place to go with all my F2 questions, repairs and advice. 18 January 2006”

Nuno Souto, Warriewood NSW, Australia : "I'm searching for words to express how good it looks and feels! Looks absolutely amazing. And that leather cover for the two buttons really sets it apart. Great idea! 16 January 2006”

Martin Grosweiner, New Brunswick, Canada : "As a professional photographer since the early 70's I have had both of my Nikons and several other cameras repaired over the years.

Also I see the wisdom of your aperture L.E.D this works so well and is such a useful addition. Actually I now prefer using the F-2 over my F-3 models.

Many thanks again, and I'll let you know when the next camera is under way! 13 July 2005 (Repeat customer)”

Graham Saunders, Kent, United Kingdom : "It was a pleasure dealing with someone so honest and knowledgeable on all aspects of the F2. You kept me informed by email and phone of all stages of the service/restoration and returned to me my F2 working as good as new. Hopefully, the camera that was outwardly good looking but inwardly rather rusty until you took it apart, will now enjoy it's second lease of life and take pictures for another thirty years now that you have worked your magic on it. For anyone with an F2 then you are the only man to deal with. You are a real gentleman and the King of the F2! 3 June 2005”

Greg Hodge, Hong Kong, China : "I must say you do marvelous work and I appreciate your willingness to contribute your expertise to our F2 community. I am enjoying my 'new' old camera very much. 25 May 2005”

Robert Sadoff (NHS member), Ontario, Canada : "I just received my order for brass replacement wind and re-wind gears for my MD-2s from Sover Wong. In addition to the beautifully machined gears, I received a set of extremely detailed instructions, with high-quality photos showing how to dismantle the motor, replace the gears, and re-assemble the unit. Wow! With detailed instructions like these, a person could take out their own appendix! Smartly done Sover, and thank you. 19 May 2005”

Kiumars Kaffi (NHS member), Gaithersburg, United States : "I had sover redo mine MD-3 and overhaul my chrome F2. It was worth the extra shipping from US to UK, and it's wonderfull. 18 May 2005”

Ben Tan, Port Washington, United States : "I received gear, gave it to a friend to install, it works perfect. Should get another 20+ years out of the MD-3. If it weren't for ebay and people like you, I would have sent motor drive to camera repair who would have overcharged me and used a gear that eventually would have split again. 16 May 2005”

Peter Gregor, Newport-on-Tay, Scotland : "I have been absolutely delighted with the whole process. It's really good to know what is going on as the camera is renovated. I can fully understand why you concentrate solely on the F2. 11 May 2005”

Nick Harman, London, United Kingdom: "I was lucky to find Sover on the web as I trawled for info on my beloved F2. He identified and rectified a major problem on my motor drive that was otherwise unfixable. All the repairers I had wasted my time on simply didn't want to be bothered with an 'old' camera. Sover also at the same time future proofed my motor drive by replacing the doomed nylon gears with his self-sourced brass ones. His foam kit has also made my F2 much quieter and smoother and I shall be sending the camera in to him for a full service as soon as I can spare it. His prices are more than fair for the attention to detail and quality of work. 9 March 2005”

Michal Hanuscak (Journalist), Bratislava, Slovakia: "I ran almost 50 films through the silver F2 you serviced (with motor attached) without problem. 25 February 2005 (Repeat customer)”

David Brown, Livingston, United Kingdom : "I'm (just) too young to have ever handled a "fresh from the factory" F2 - but I suspect it must have felt a bit like this! Many thanks for all your hard work. F2's being F2's it is unlikey that this one will ever need any more attention but if it ever does then I won't hesitate to trust it to your care. 11 February 2005”

Giovanni Santangelo, Airola, Italy : "I've no words, simply perfect. Thank for your courtesy. Thank for you professionality. Thank for your fastness. 11 February 2005”

Jurgen Kreckel, Saylorsburg, PA United States, www.certo6.com Folding cameras repairer : "Mr. Wong's service on my Nikon F2 was simply beyond what could possibly be expected.

I will certainly recommend you to anyone I meet in future who wants help or advice with their F2. 22 December 2004”

Jean-Marc Quach, Clayton, MO United States : "The F2T back arrived safely, and you did a wonderful job of replacing the plate. Thank you. 8 December 2004”

Lars Aamodt, Oslo, Norway: "Just picked up my Nikon F2AS and MD-2 which have had an extended service. It's like new! I would not trust my F2 to anybody else than Sover Wong. We had excellent communication during the overhaul (he mailed me pictures etc) and his service is most professional. Later I will send him my F2 Photomic as well. 26 October 2004”

Tony Lloyd, Nelson, United Kingdom : "You have made a superb job of the overhaul. The service that you offer is first class. I Iike the Japanese coin and CD. Communication has been excellent. The pictures of the repair work going on is a brilliant idea. 16 October 2004”

Elias Politis, Athens, Greece : "Everything is fine. Once again, thank you very much. This camera means a lot to me. 6 October 2004”

Serge Poliquin, St Bruno, Quebec Canada : "I'm very impressed, quick turn-around for an oversea's shipement. I haven't had the time to test it fully, at first glance, it's right on the money, comparing it to my F4 and my old faithfull Gossen SBC lightmeter. I'm also impressed with the quality of your service, it's not your common repair facilitiy that gives detailed photographs and explanations of their work and sends you a cd containing repair manuals for 5 or 6 different bodies too top it all off. Let's just say that I can't find the word to thank you and for you to keep-up the good work. 28 September 2004”

Andrew Kalman, http://pumpkininc.com/, San Francisco, CA United States : "Received my #2 F2 today -- looks great. 1 October 2004 (Repeat customer)”

Andrew Kalman, http://pumpkininc.com/, San Francisco, CA United States : "I sent Sover a pre-AI F2 for his Standard Service on the F2 body and an Extended Service on the early DP-1 Photomic Finder. Sover kept me apprised of what he found, even emailing pics as he disassembled and service the units, emailed me calibration results, and rectified a mechanical problem in the DP-1 finder, as well as replaced its early carbon ring resistor with a later wire-cladded one, and replacing a faulty Cds cell. A Sover overhaul like this may exceed the eBay value of some F2's. However, this camera may well outlive me, and so I have no hesitation recommending his service to all. 13 September 2004”

John and Robert Schoneman, Appleton, WI United States : "I WAS impressed. It has the spit, polish and feel of a new camera. I congratulate and thank you. Sover, to have this F2 restored as well as it has is a tribute to your skill and service. I looked around at other services, here in the states and overseas, but there was simply no other choice. For those of you novice or veterans who have this F2 and are looking to restore it, Sover is clearly your man. Period. The photos and communications between owner make a facinating link on a piece of equipment that we were to give up for dead. Don't waste time or money, give him a holler, first. This camera, though a dinosaur, can compete against the finest SLR's, digitals when used properly. Especially in professional uses. More cost effective to do this route in many cases than to buy a cheaper, newer SLR. Think hard and long before you decide to write it off...your answer most likely might be above. EBAY acquired units-take heed! 23 August 2004”

Sven Felsby, Brabrand, Denmark : "Sover Wong has made a professional job on my two F2 bodies and dp-11 finder. I am sure that no other repair shop can offer this level of service, with the courtesy, speed, large spare parts inventory and modest prices I have encountered. Highly recommended. 18 August 2004”

Joel Tomlinson, Hove, United Kingdom : "4 years ago my camera was declared "dead" by Nikon. They said it was unfixable and there was nothing they could do. Then, a couple of weeks ago I came across Sover. I sent him my camera but didn't hold out much hope. However Sover worked diligently and kept me updated daily with descriptions of what he was doing to the camera and photos of his work (through which I now know the camera better than ever before!) Sover has not only mended the faults that were pronounced "unmendable" by Nikon, but it now works, looks and feels as good a new. He's marvellous and I am eternally thankful. 5 August 2004”

Chris Li, Hong Kong, China : "The repair service by Sover is second to none - excellent work and quick turnaround time. He also kept me posted of the repair progress with photos and detailed explanations. I am really impressed by the care to my equipment for there was not even a scratch on the MD-2 even though it had been disassembled. Now I have a fully functional MD-2 again. What else can I say except a BIG thanks! 21 July 2004”

Ali Alizadeh, East Lansing, MI United States : "The restoration done on my F2 by Sover Wong is in every way perfect. There is no amount of money that can be surmised for the quality of work done. For his commitment to craftsmanship I can only offer my most humble gestures of gratitude. Thank you for everything you've done. My father is very impressed as well. I'm very pleased with the camera, I do really appreciate the work you've done on it. Thank you so much once agian. 18 July 2004 (This camera came to me damaged and in bits.)”

January Vandenbergh, Heverlee, Belgium : "The camera looks really nice! I'm just happy with the service and results. 12 July 2004”

Gary Nalavany, Hanover, PA United States : "It looks and sounds good! I'm happy to have the camera back thank you for fixing it! 9 July 2004 (This F2 had a shattered front plate/lens mount.) “

Tim Hayward, London, United Kingdom : "The camera arrived yesterday and feels just beautiful. I can't believe how good that old lens feels now too. I'm naturally going to recommend you to anyone I know with enough class to own a Nikon and I'll certainly be back with any other equipment I acquire. I've stopped calling it a Nikon now, I'm going to call it a 'Sover Wong F2'. Hey, if Oscar Barnack can do it... why not you? 7 July 2004”

Graham Dawson, Derby, United Kingdom: "I sent an ebay acquired F2AS to Sover for an extended service as it apparently hadn't been used for over 10 years and had electrical problems. To my eyes, it was a bit scruffy but o.k. - when Sover opened it up, he found water damage, rust and sand! (and sent me the pictures that prove it!). He serviced both the body and prism and it now all works perfectly (all shutter speeds within 1/4 stop!). Sover also provided several replacement parts either free or for a very small charge so the camera now also looks in better shape. Despite taking more work than anticipated, Sover finished the service quickly and his charges were so reasonable that I still think my F2AS was a bargain - if you don't know the history of your F2 or it hasn't been CLA'd recently, trust Sover to 'sort it out'! 24 June 2004”

Geoff Hopkinson, Brisbane, Australia: "After initial prompt, friendly and helpful e-mail communication, I sent my eBay acquired F2SB to Sover for a complete CLA. On the same day that it arrived, I received a series of diagnostic and informative photos, accompanied by complete detail of work required. The servicing was completed on the same day and even included additional work beyond that agreed, with no extra charges to me. I am thrilled with the transformation to this wonderful old camera. Sover's workmanship and professionalism are exemplary. I recommend his work without reservation. 22 March 2004”

Michal Hanuscak (Journalist), Bratislava, Slovakia: "If your F2 is starting to die and long shutter speeds are working more like infinity than 1 second, then Sover is the right person you can trust your camera to: not only it returned cleaned, it now sounds better and the shutter and mirror jump inside as silky as it was once new. Highly recommended! 20 March 2004”

Peter Hjortzberg-Nordlund, Solna, Sweden : "After having problems with the quality and high prices of the Nikon F2 service in Sweden, I read about Sover Wong in the Nikon forum on www.photo.net. After some friendly e-mails four F2's from me and a friend were on a trip half around the world to Sover for service. The service was on a level and quality that I am not used to here in Scandinavia, and even if you include the cost of postage from Sweden-Australia-Sweden the prices were very reasonable. Four more F2's were sent to Sover for service, and after having 8 cameras serviced by Sover I can say that Mr Wong is a very professional and friendly person to do business with. I highly recommend Sover's services. 26 February 2004”

Ingmar Hindenes, Norway : "I've had my DP-1 finder CLA'ed with Sover and the service was exceptional. Good communicaiton with e-mailed pictures of the work done, and very quick service too.

Eric Maquiling, Irvine, CA United States : "I just got my F2 back - not only does it look, feel, smell great, it is so much more smoother than I ever, ever remember it since the early 80's. I now know what if must've felt like when it came out of a box. I highly recommend your F2 to send to him. If you haven't done so in the last 10 years, now is the time. 20 January 2004”

Mal Davies, West Wyalong, NSW Australia : "Great job. I'd rate you 10 out of 10. 24 December 2003”

Jorge Dopazo, New York, United States : "It is remarkable how Sover performs his craft. He has a thorough technical knowledge of the Nikon F2 and it's history, and most important he maintains an extensive inventory of parts to keep the legacy going forever. Sover's approach to his specialty is unique. Soon after your camera is in his hands, he e-mails you an evaluation and his recommended service. He then proceeds to do his magic, sending you detailed progress reports every step of the way, even pictures. It's as if you were by his side watching him work. The results are amazing. His prices are in line with other repair shops and yet his quality of workmanship is unequaled. I would highly recommend him to the serious collector or user of the F2. Sover is a master craftsman. No wonder he is gaining a reputation as the world's foremost expert on F2 repairs and restoration. 19 December 2003”

Todd Peach, Yahoo NikonMF moderator, Seattle, United States : "Sover's prices are very reasonable, and he really knows the F2 inside and out. Shipping from and to outside the US adds to the cost, but even factoring that in, Sover's prices are substantially less than any other Nikon repair place I know for the level of service he offers. Quality F2 service is getting hard to come by; the mailing is the easy part. 16 November 2003"

John Metcalf, Lebanon, United States : "Thank you so much for your excellent work on my father's F2. I received it in perfect working order and am looking forward to seeing things as my dad did through the viewfinder. 16 October 2003”

Jack van Mulken, Nuenen, The Netherlands : "Sover helped me repairing my Nikon MD-2. He happily supplied the very hard to find parts at a very resonable price. Further he supported me in the very best way possible. He made the repair actually quite easy! Sover is a super asset for Nikon F2 enthusiasts and I am most happy to do business with him again! 3 September 2003”

Henry Fisher, Atlanta, United States : "My DP-1 arrived in today's mail, right on schedule. I put a fresh 3.0V battery in the F2, seated the metering head, and the meter is now working just like it did when it was new. The needle's jumpiness is completely gone, as you said. I am very happy with your service, the speedy response, and the special care you gave the equipment. 29 August 2003”

Shin Sugiyama, Nagoya, Japan : "The Nikon F2 is probably the ultimate mechanical SLR and with proper servicing will last a lifetime. Sover is a great person to have working on your F2 because he loves it and specializes on this one camera. He is willing to do repair work that most shops will no longer do because of lack of parts or lack of adequate experience with the classic Nikons. 8 August 2003”
