Hi,
My first post as a Nikonian member. Enjoyed reading other posts and site info for past few months. I have a question I'm hoping some can help with.

I'm looking at purchasing a used Nikon 17-55 f/2.8 lens. Condition looks near perfect, except the focal length adjustment ring rubber shows oxidation/whiteness. Works fine, just doesn't look all that great to me.

Done some searching and found someone recommending 303 Aerospace Protectant to make the rubber look brand new, without being greasy. Anyone have experience with this? Any other suggestions? I searched for purchasing a replacement ring, but looks like Nikon doesn't sell this particular part(maybe they wish to fix something like this themselves?).


Thanks,
-Bob
