Re: so which lubricant?

PS: The Nikon bayonets are not self-lubricating. There are actually some brass metals that are designed to self-lubricate. You see them most often in "oil lite" bearings. The Nikon Bayonets are either solid aluminun alloy or plated alloy.

Hi actually the Nikon body mount is Stainless steel the lens mounts are plated brass alloy.
