Advice on repair shops in London

Hi guys,

I recently arrived in London, going to be here for about a year. I already manged to almost drop my 60D+24-105 out of a third floor window (don't ask). Caught it at the last moment, the uv filter caught a blow, glass smashed. The lens and camera seem fine, however the filter got bent into the threading.

I would appreciate any advice on a good repair shop in London, as I cannot seem to manage to remove it on my own.

cheers.

Re: Advice on repair shops in London

Thanks Chris.
I would still prefer to first try a local shop, because if there's a chance the filter could be removed without damaging the lens, the lens itself won't need repair.
Some one recommended to me a place called "Fixation UK" in London, so I will prob try that. Any one familiar with it?
Any more recommendations are still appreciated.

Re: Advice on repair shops in London

Hi again,
Just for closure (and maybe it will benefit others in London):
I went to "Fixation" which was recommended to me. As I had hoped, there was no damage to the lens. The bent and broken filter was removed on the spot (took them about 10 minutes)
They charge 10 pounds + VAT for the work, or they do it for free if you purchase a new filter with them.

All in all I was very lucky. Thanks for your suggestions along the way.
