Hello all: I had a catastrophe, with Hasselblad Zeiss 30mm F3.5 Distagon T* C Fisheye lens circa 1975.
It was dropped from 2' height onto a metal case corner. The lens shade and front
element hit a glancing blow on the corner of the case.
One shade "petal" bent, severely, but not broken, the front element has a thick mark on the coating, a few inches long, but the glass surface seems to be undamaged.
Incredibly the shade damage does not intrude into the image, and the lens seems to work OK!
I attempted to clean it with Digiclean A and B solutions, lens tissue, and lens cleaning
solution. Finally the Lens Pen. Cleaning gave some improvement, but the coating mark does not fully clean off, perhaps the coating is damaged?
Hasselblad or Zeiss service is very costly and they my not have the parts anymore. I am looking for alternatives.
1, Any other suggestions to clean the coating mark?
2, Any USA or EU lens repair firms that you can suggest? (eg EX Hasselblad technician!)
3, Do you think the petal shade (aluminum?) will break if it was straightened?
4. Any source of parts for these old lenses?
