Lens Rehousing Process

Lens rehousing is a lengthy process and incurs a significant cost. We strongly advise that you thoroughly research and gather as much information as possible before making a decision. We recommend visiting our About page, reviewing our FAQs section, exploring our pricing page, reading behind-the-scenes stories on our blog, and utilizing our cost calculator to gain a comprehensive understanding of the process.

After thoroughly researching and gathering information as outlined above, should you still have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will do our utmost to address and answer them for you.

Once you have done significant research and want to proceed with getting your lenses rehoused with us, there are a few steps ahead:

Contact Form

2. Contact us via our contact form or email us directly or send us a message via our Facebook or Instagram page. We’ll confirm the rehousing cost and the current lead time, and then send you an electronic service agreement for your review and signature. Once you agree and sign the service agreement, we will send you an invoice for the deposit. During this step, we will gather as much information as possible from you, such as your focus scale preferences, whether you want to include bearings in your rehousing, etc.


3. After a 50% deposit is received, you can choose whether you want to ship your lenses immediately or at least 3-4 months before your production date.

  • We will also send you a report on your set of lenses, including photos of each lens and the results of our examination. If there is an issue with any of your lenses, we will inform you and try to find the best solution before the rehousing. For example, we sometimes receive lenses with coating defects that were overlooked by the owner, which can impact image quality. It’s important to make sure you are well-informed about the current condition of your lenses.

4. Once your set is ready, we will contact you and provide you with photos and a final report. You will then need to pay the remaining cost for the rehousing, as well as any shipping, import, and other related fees, before we can ship your rehoused set to you.
