  1. Tony,

    I posted this note on the rangefinderforum.com site today. Any advice?

    "The shutter-speed selector on my Hexar RF appears to be partially
    frozen. I can move the dial only the short distance between B and AEL,
    and with great difficulty. I don't know whether it's the locking button
    or the selector knob that is the problem. But, in any event, a repair is
    in order.

    Has anyone had a similar problem? And can anyone recommend a repair
    facility/person?" TIA

    HFL

    Hi Harry,

    I'm sorry for the delay in replying - I have been out of town for a
    few days.

    I haven't heard of your specific problem before. I would not
    recommend trying to repair it yourself - the rangefinder in the Hexar
    RF is especially sensitive and it is quite difficult to adjust.

    I strongly recommend you to send the camera to Greg Weber. Greg has a
    wealth of experience with Konica cameras generally and is an authority
    on the Hexar RF. Parts are now very difficult to get - there has been
    much talk of large stocks of spares being dumped by Sony - but Greg
    probably has some repair cameras. As your fault is not common (as far
    as I know) there is a good chance that he will be able to repair it
    with parts from another camera body.
