I thought both MaxMax and LifePixels were too expensive and evasive in their emails to me so I searched the net and contacted this guy:

Expensive, yes, but I had good experiences with both. I will say that MaxMax is not as easy to get things worked out initially, but they did good work and returned the camera quickly.

LifePixels has dropped their price to $250 now, so they're at the top of my list.

Thanks for the link, I'll check him out.

I got a Canon G11 converted by him and the service I received was first class and friendly. Going through the hassle of testing all my lenses to know which one works and which ones produce hot spots is not something I look forward to so I've postponed getting a DSLR converted.

Yes, the hotspots can be very annoying, but I really like being able to hand hold the camera, so I need the filter to be on the sensor. I have a d200 that I was going to have converted, but now, the new cameras have such improvements in noise and DR over the d200 that I'm thinking of doing either a d3200 or d5100 conversion.
