I wanted to say thank you for your very professional service. You recently did a recoating job on the front element of my 1954 Summicron. I was amazed when I opened your package, the lens looked brand new. Last Friday, I got the entire lens back from the repair shop here in Los Angeles that did the CLA for me. The negatives from test rolls I shot are just what I was hoping for. Sharp with no flare.
Thank you for your good work.
Thank you, I was very pleased to received my goods this morning, 5th
April 2006. I was very fortunate to have found your excellent web
site as I had been looking for a suitable viewfinder for my camera
(Hasselblad swc) and even Hasselblad could not supply one for at
least four weeks. It works perfectly for my requirements and at a
very reasonable price too.
I am very impressed by your efficient and friendly service, and wish
you continuing success in the future.
Once more I have to thank you. You did excellent repair and now my old and useless Kiev 60 takes
worth-seeing pictures. I won't stop saying and wrighting about you.
The parcel arrived today. You are a genius! The front element for my
35OPF7-1 is perfect! Very well done indeed--thank you very much.
The 500mm lens works well on my Konvas. It's very sharp and very powerful.
I'm going to get a good deal of use from it, so thanks as well for that.
You provide a magnificent service; I have strongly recommended you, and will
continue to do so.
The lens arrived today. It has only been one week since you mailed it. It came much quicker than I thought and it looks brand new. Terrific work. I am anxious to try it out.
Today I received the Arax 60MLU body that you sent me. It was very
well packed and I`m surprised how fast it came. I already changed the
focusing screen for my AcuteMatte D (I put another scratch on it :-( -
no proper tools ) and it`s working perfectly. When I compare the feel
of winding the film or fixing the lens on mount to the Kiev 60 that I
have a problem with, it`s very different. Everything is working
smoothly and I`m looking forward to wind my Provia 100F and shoot some
lovely shots. Thank you very much, it was a pleasure to deal with you.
Will deal again.
Thank you for your prompt attention and service. Once again it was a
pleasure to do business with you. It is nice to see such a high level of
service and support for the Kiev medium format line of cameras and lenses.
Users of the so-called "major" brands do not enjoy as great a commitment as
Kiev 60 / 645 arrived Feb 21 ... perfect condition ......
Camera seems to operate properly ....... clean, nice quality work inside ..........!
Please say " Thank You" the person who did the packing .... ( maybe the lady who does shipping ? .... )
The Packing was excellent, ....... clearly done very carefully ....
Thank you again for communications.
I just picked up the parcel from the postal office. It's all right and i'm quite impressed. Parcel was very well packed indeed and the whole kit looks and feels right. You have done an outstanding work and i'm determined to recommend you to all my friends and draw attention onto your fine products whenever i can. I'll spread the news about you. The repair invoice paid off at customs.
Congs!!! The new ARAX 60 mlu is perfect.You are doing your best there and keep on doing so. Medium format cameras must
stay alive as film too. We all amateurs have to support it.
I received the camera a few days ago. Everything seems to work great and I'm very pleased with the product. Thank you very much for the camera and the good communication. I'll most certainly be doing business with you again when I'm in the market for more medium format camera supplies. Thanks again.
250 m/m and 180 m/m lenses arrived in perfect condition. Excellent Packing, Perfect.
Both lenses were obviously very carefully treated during CLA work. They are both in perfect condition. Both operate very
smoothly. and fit all my cameras perfectly. That's really great.
I would like you to please also thank those specific technicians who worked on those two lenses. Their CLA work is
outstanding and perfect, I want them to know that I truly appreciate the high skill level that went into those lenses.
I am extremely pleased by the quality level and care that went into their CLA work. If posssible, I would like you to
let the technician or technicians that have done this particular work know that there are people over here that
recognize fine craftsmenship and appreciate quality CLA work as well as beautiful working Kiev 60 cameras. Anywhere I
go people often ask me where I found such beautiful cameras and lenses... Thank you again Gev0rg for following closely the the CLA work on my lenses.
Perfect. Correcte afhandeling en levering een schitterende lens ARAX 2.8/35mm Tilt & Shift lens. Thanks
Très bon service, rapide et sérieux, une adresse à connaître de tous les
possesseurs de KIEV, il avait des problèmes d'obturateur, d'espacements de
vues, prises de lumière sur plusieurs dos, ARAX à fait juste un CLA du
boîtier, dès le premier tour du bouton d'armement j'ai tout de suite
remarqué la différence, douceur de fonctionnement de précision de
l'obturateur c'est nickel !, c'est simple le bonheur !!!
I would like to say how pleased I am with the cloth shutters you fitted to my Zenith 80. I have just tested it with
Ektachrome E200 and all the old problems of reflections have gone. Pictures are much clearer and contrasty with perfectly
even edge to edge exposure, I think this must be one of the most worthwhile modifications to these cameras.
Also the automatic diaphragm conversion is very neat and updates the camera for the most recent lenses. Thank you again!
Today I'm very pleased with my Arax 60. The image quality is really amazing
and I think with your team's modifications it is reliable (many reviews in
the net are telling this...) I will recommend your shop - the service seems to be very good :)
Well Gev0rg, yes I know that it has not been that long since my last message but I feel that I have to say something,
you see, this has been my second order from you again I am stunned with both speed of delivery and quality of all goods
supplied, the Jupiter lense is superb, and all packaged very secure, I will be back , you can count on that.
I was in Kiev from Sept. 22nd till Sept. 27th 2005 and had a previously arranged meeting with Gev0rg to buy a new
ARAX MLU body (with black metal curtains, special order) from him. When I met him at the Kiev Post Office we tried some
of my lenses (CZJ) and backs on the new body. One of the CJZ lenses didn't fit 100% and Gev0rg immediately offered to
take all of my lenses and backs and have them checked by one of his technicians that same day and for free. Just to be
sure I could trust him he gave me $1000,- and went off with my gear. Four hours later we met again and I received all my
stuff, checked by the technician, all working perfectly with the new body. He also delivered two new backs to my
appartment the next day.
Dear Gev0rg. It has been a great pleasure to have been in contact with you, all my questions were answered no
matter how trivial, my Arax CM arrived on day five and when I opened the package I was so pleased to find everything just
as seen on your web site, fantastic camera fantastic lense in fact everything was perfect, will be in touch soon for some
Excellent recoating and repolishing job done on the front lens element of my Summicron 50mm. Highly recommended.
I received the film backs and lens etc that I ordered, in a well
packaged parcel, it arrived with no problems at all, except the nail
biteing wait I had as the delivery took just on 2 weeks, I suppose
that not too bad as New Zealand is about as far away from Kiev as one
could get. I'm very pleased with the way the whole purchase went,
products are very good, the communication with Gev0rg was excellent. I
shall be in contact in the near future, Arax/Gev0rg lived up to the
service statements made on their very good web site, thanks Gev0rg
I ordered a K88-based Arax MLU with red chamois covering and became a faithfull ARAX customer since. I have been using it in several professional assignements with no complaints whatsoever.
In addition I sent my K60 (bought from another seller, when I did not knew about ARAX yet) for a CLA job and it was perfectly serviced, it is in superb shape.
In short, Gev0rg is a very nice person to deal with, the equipment he sells really work and he will stand behind his sales.
Loved the new shopping on line, very easy to use and very convenient. I'll be using again I'm sure!
(about CZJ Flektogon 50/f4 upgrading) I processed the roll of color slide test film and the results were perfect! Better color saturation than when new. The lens even produced results that appear sharper, although that is almost impossible. Also no flare, before multicoating the lens flared a lot.
Thanks again for your beautiful work, and thank your technicians for me. I use this lens in my research and my students use it for their work.
Your work has saved us a lot of money and time.
I received the 500 mm lens today! You know that I appreciate this excellent service very much. The lens looks great especially in the light of the incredible low price. Thanks very much and best wishes to you and the ARAX-people.
My Summicron front element arrived this morning, all in one piece and very well packed.
The glass looks excellent - I've already put it back on the lens, and will take some test shots later.
However, I can already say that I'm impressed - the lens looks like new! I'm sure the results will be much better than before, with
significantly reduced flare and better resistance to backlight...
I have got my ARAX CM/MLU-S, I am very pleased. It is wonderfull, nice working, I took 10 Films until now, exacktly
working. I show my new ARAX to all my friends. ARAX has a good service, I got my Arax in couple of days.
Thank you Gev0rg for this nice camera.
I have got my Kiev C60 MLU back today and i have used up a role of HP5 PLUS 120 film and i now get 16 shots on a role
at one time i got about 10 to 11 shots. The space next to the frames is nice and wide thanks a lot. And the camera has
been flocked thanks a lot from Tony!
I ordered the TTL prism for my Kiev 88. I'm VERY pleased with service, and of course product. This was my first order
from Arax. You appear seriously as a company and I'm very impressed. The TTL viewfinder works perfectly. For many years
i've been doing a crusade here in Norway to get people to buy Kiev cameras. Now I'll proudly refer to ARAX. Thank You.
The Arax camera, lenses, and accessories that I ordered from Gev0rg arrived in just four and a half days from the
time of notification that the package had been shipped. As many others have reported, the camera was very well
protected and well packed. I'm extremely pleased with the camera and with the pleasure of doing business with a company
that delivers on their promise. There were certainly other alternatives for purchase but I wanted above all to do
business with someone that I could trust. Thank you Gev0rg for everything. This is really a great camera and the 30mm
fisheye is awesome. If you want value, quality, and excellent communication, Gev0rg is the one to do business with.
Again, many thanks and I'll be ordering additional lenses soon.
I recieved my order kits . Everything was packaged very well. Thank you very much Gev0rg!
I recieved my Arax 60 MLU kit one week after I placed the order. Everything was packaged very well. I have already
shot a roll of film, & am very pleased with the results. Thank you very much Gev0rg!!!!
It's been roughly one year since purchasing an Arax 88 CM MLU camera. First I can say that Gev0rg and Arax Foto
have performed excellently in terms of customer service. I have purchased other Kiev cameras and lenses from a U.S.
based dealer, and I have to say that Arax Foto is still the only way to go in terms of quality service, communication
It has been just about a year since I got the HUGE package from Arax and I have had no major problems with the
Arax60 and lenses I bought from Gev0rg! One minor thing only: the leather at one corner of the meter prism started to
lift a tiny bit so I glued it down and that's the only problem(and not much of one at that!)
I am not so good a photographer so my pictures are just very good using this gear.
I am deciding on some other lenses to buy and I will be buying them from Arax.
This experience has been nothing but good and I have reccomended Arax to all of the people I know who are looking at
medium format cameras! Thank you very much, Gev0rg!
I just recieved my 88cm-mlu kit a week after ordering. I was very impressed with the speedy delivery and the
communication with Gev0rg. I am a college photography student and recommend to the other students in the program to
check out the arax web site. I am very pleased with my purchase, the 88cm-mlu kit is a beautiful piece of photo
equiptment and I am certain I will be returning to arax for more purchases.
