Re: Sticking lens hood

I've used dry silicone spray as Stephen describes for years on my lens hood bayonets and the zoom barrels of all my lenses. It works a treat and I don't wish for anything better. I'd be prepared to bet that Olympus use a silicone treatment during assembly of their lenses - new lenses have the characteristic silky/slippery feel of silicone treated surfaces.
