Re: Oh dear, my MC14

All the new Olympus lenses I've bought have the characteristic slippery-silky feel of having been treated with silicone during manufacture - probably as an assembly aid. Another advantage is that water droplets just bead on the surface, rather than 'wicking' into the joints and seals.

Re: Oh dear, my MC14

Do they sell an amateur version for use on non-pro grade lenses?

Re: Oh dear, my MC14

It's having to go back for repair. I managed to push some back but I think it's stretched so I've got a bit left over.

Re: Oh dear, my MC14

Can we turn this into a how I use dry silicone spray?
It is good on camera bag buckles.
