shutter speed numbers are really worn


New Member
The EV numbers and shutter speed numbers on my chrome 80mm Planar are really worn. Very hard to read. Anyone know where I could get it re-done?
hi ron,i can either replace your EV /shutter speed ring with a good one ,or replace it with
a replacement band which is glued over the
old ring. it is a matter of joice,have done both
of them .
Thanks Jurgen. Please email me with particulars at - the replacement band sounds better since I assume it would not require shipping the lens back and forth - assuming I could apply it myself.
