Clean and grease 50mm f/1.2 AI
« on: March 30, 2022, 19:43:01 »
I found a good condition lens which is a bit hard to turn towards the close distance end. I hope it didn't have an accident which its good condition doesn't suggest.
Maybe it only needs greasing. Is this something a seasoned RC modeler could do himself? What's the right grease?

Any tips are welcome.

Thanks and Regards, Daniel

It’s not so hard to work on. One of my few successes in fact.
