Overtime your black lens rubber may start oxidising and turn a rather ugly whitish colour...

 

My Nikkor 70~200VR1 f/2.8 lens started showing this and after treating it as indicated in the link below now looks as good as new again!

 

 

Hope this simple cheap solution is of benefit to those concerned.

Equipment: D810 | D300 | D50 | B700 | P5000 and some lenses.

Thanks, Herman, great tip.

Great way to revitalize.

After regripping one of my cameras with new rubber, I might lean towards buying new rings. A little more money, but it makes the lens feel new.
