I recently had to send my 2.5-10X56mm Swarovski into SONA for repair. It had turned from bright and clear to hazy and yellow. The repair description came back as "UKS lens mounted" and internal cleaning. Can anyone elaborate? Thanks

That may be a question that you could call and ask Swaro about directly, Sir.

I don't have a clue. Koshkin might know.

I don't know what that means either, but how is the scope now that it has come back from repair?

Well,
Optically it was great. Whatever they did, it cured the problem. However, the tube and bell somehow ended up damaged. Looks like tool marks or minor scratches that weren't there when I sent it in. Could have happened during shipping. I don't know. I e-mailed SONA and they said they would make it right so its going back tomorrow. I asked the question about the UKS lens in that same e-mail but didn't get an answer.

SONA treated me very well the 2 times I used their CS.  I know they didn't get along well with Kahles and they aren't always the most helpful folks over the phone, but when I sent them a scope for repair that I dropped on a rock and had them change out the rubber armor on a Kahles binocular, they were very prompt and didn't charge me anything.
 
Glad to hear the scope issue was fixed to your satisfaction.
