as I was an allow some snow to drop on your camera. So now the metal ring that holds the lens is a little 'rusty' I can still put lens' on and off but there's a definite friction, that wasn't there before. Is there any way I can fix this?
Visit my Nikonians gallery.
I can remove light rust from metal, but would not try it with my 5100. You may get rust or metal particles in the camera body. I would take it to my local photo shop and have it sent out for repair.Laverne
Try contacting a Nikon authorized repair center in your area for a quote. It may be cheaper than sending it to Nikon directly for a non-warranty repair. Good luck.--Ben
