    Pliobond (a contact cement) is what is often recommended for camera leather. I've used it (for that purpose) and it works well.

    Another vote for contact cement. I use it for bellows, camera leather, etc. It should work fine on a focusing ring. I even used it to put a rubber mat onto the head of a Majestic tripod.

    Pliobond is the standard adhesive in the camera repair industry for sticking leatherette and other coverings to metal.

    It's quite resistant to temperature and humidity extremes, yet the parts can be separated if necessary for repairs in the future.

    ... but Pliobond stinks. Or, at least it used to. The smell eventually goes away but it takes a while as I recall.

    Pliobond is not sold at the perfume counter.

    Pliobond. Ace Hardware. Michaels craft store. I use it on all bellows I replace. It does stink until it dries. Great stuff. Make sure to stir it before use.

    With contact cement (like for gluing veneer) , the bond is permanent, you won't be able to get the grip off for service. it'll have to be ripped off. No epoxy, crazy glue, cyanoacrylate or clear rubber cement found in art supply stores. Use brown rubber cement like "Pliobond" or "Goo" (NOT "Goop"). They cure to pure rubber and can be separated when need be. John
