Competence and Reliability

The lens service at Chrosziel!

A few years after Chrosziel GmbH was founded, the business field was expanded by the lens service – repairs and maintenance of Canon and Fujinon optics. During the 1990s, Chrosziel GmbH was the partner of Ikegami for EB cameras as well as Angenieux’s sales and service partner.

Today, through our lens service, we offer you the following services:

  • A basic examination of the lenses (free of charge)
  • General repairs
  • Measurement of the flange focal distance for the lenses
  • Repair of the servo unit and other electronic components
  • Replacement of glass elements
  • Eliminating soiling of and damage to the lenses

Chrosziel has countless replacement parts in storage and/or can procure these replacement parts quickly.


Our colleague Mr. Manfred Wittl has managed the Lens Division at Chrosziel for decades. Customers from renowned companies confidently bring him their lenses to be serviced. We proudly count the following large broadcasting companies among our customers: The BR, the ZDF, the WDR, but also countless smaller production companies. Several leading rental companies in Germany rely on Mr. Wittl’s specialised competence as well as his outstanding work and send us their lens–regardless of whether they are sending us their S16, PL or EB for service or repair. After our consultation, even optics with an older manufacturing date can be serviced or repaired.

Our testing devices – which we specially developed and manufactured in-house at Chrosziel – are an invaluable aid to us when rendering these services. With our collimator, the flange focal distance of lenses can be reliably measured. With our testing projector and our self-developed testing slides, flaws in and deviations of optics can be visually identified. This work is supported through countless optics frames, e.g. 1/3”, 2/3” B4, 16 mm Aaton, Arri PL, Nikon F, Canon EF and MFT as well as many more. All popular models are available in-house and can be utilised together with our collimator or projector.

In most cases, the repairs or other services can be completed quickly. Before any services are rendered, we will naturally draft a detailed cost estimate for you.
