Hi There!


The zoom is really sticking on my Bauer 8E. It sounds like something grinding around in there-- has anyone else had this problem? If I apply tension with my hand (squeezing the area around the zoom-ring slightly) it is easier to move, but still sticks somewhat.

I am wondering how difficult it might be to take apart the lens and figure out if it needs lubrication or what but I don't want to break anything.

The problem is inconsistent and may be related to the macro setting.

Perhaps it is hopeless, if the plastic has deteriorated.

Any advice appreciated. Many thanks.

Zach
