Where do you send your lenses in for cleaning?

I have some dirt inside my Fujinon zoom. Since Paul Cotto is gone, I don't know where else I can get that lens cleaned. Who do you guys use?

Thanks, Gerald, I think I should have mentioned I'm in the United States, hehe. If anyone knows somewhere in America that would do it, please let me know.

Maybe Pro8mm?

I have fungus in my Angenieux 12-120. >_<

Where in the US can I get it removed?

Paul Duclos is the best in the USA specializing in lens repair for the motion picture industry, and has been in business for decades. Lenses are shipped to him for repair from all over the world. For those who read this and may want a lens repaired which was made specifically for 8mm or super 8, he no longer has all the equipment necessary to work on them. I believe his rate is $75/hr. https://www.ducloslenses.com
