Stiff zoom cure pl100-400
2

I am not advising anyone to try this, but being fedup with my zoom being so stiff to twist that I have always had to pull and push it in and out, I carefully wiped some silicon spray on the barrel and hey presto what a difference, it is now about 4x better at least.

It must be lubricating the seal.

If anyone dares to try it - at your own risk - take care not to get any inside the lens, or on the glass.
