Re: Third time ?!?!?!?!?!

If you feel you have to do this a proper silicon lubricant would be better than furniture polish. The latter will have waxes which are likely to congeal and cause problems later.

Best not to do this at all I would think.

Secondly, I always extend the lens barrel full, as in usually full zoom, then clean the outside of the barrels with a slippery cleaner like silicon furniture cleaner, this makes it much easier for the lens motor to move the lens and hense less current drawn from the battery.
