    My 38/1.8 is a bit stiff. Who's the go-to person for Pen F lens CLA?

    Hazy 40mm lens probably has a separated element, no new parts available. The 38 probably has oil throughout the blade mechanism. Would require a complete disassembly, degreasing, replacement of focus grease and then recalibration of infinity focus. John
