Nikon’s Taiwan Repair Center Can Fix Up Your Broken Lens… And Make it White

nikonwhite1

Shoot with Nikon DSLR gear and want to give your lens a paint job? Instead of doing it yourself—which, by the way, can produce some neat results—you can send your lens over to the Nikon Repair Center in Taiwan. In addition to fixing up damaged lenses–sometimes by boiling the parts in water—the center can also give your lens a sleek, white paint job.

Over on the official Nikon Repair Center Taiwan blog, there are a number of posts documenting lens repairs and paint jobs.

The photograph above is a before-and-after comparison of a beat up Nikon 70-200mm lens that the repair center fixed up and turned white. Here’s another one:

The repair center has also shot a series of photos showing what the whitened lenses look like up close:
