Kern Paillard Lenses

Recommended Posts



I have a few of these lenses and they could all do with cleaning as they have dust particles inside.


As they are the smaller D-Mount lenses, I would imagine the dust must be impacting on the image.


Does anyone know how to clean one of these?


Has anyone ever taken one apart? I cannot find any servicing information on these.


Thanks for any help anyone can offer.


Kind Regards

Hello, Carl, I do service on Kern-Paillard and Paillard-Bolex products.

Frankly, dust isn’t a big problem, a greasy film is way worse. What profits most of a CLA procedure are the mechanics of a lens, the focus thread foremost.
