A friend gave me a nikon 28-70mm lens he had not used for quite some time. It's nice and clean, but between 50-70mm the focus ring is a little hard to turn. Any suggestions what I can do about that? Preferably something I can do myself, as I don't have a nikon service centre here in Bali. I have read somewhere that sometimes it's necessary to use some grease (lube). If someone has experience with this, please let me know. I am quite technical so working on a lens does not scare me (too much).

thank you for any suggestions
