I NEVER add anything to it. I just make sure the connection is kept clean. I wipe them down when it starts to stick. Just clean it, and it is as good as new.

I just use wd-40, now the connection between lens and hood is so smooth that i am afraid the hood may fall out.

I'd worry about using WD-40, it'll attract dust and exacerbate the problem after some time.

Nose grease.

Rub your finger along your nose (No! On the outside!) Then rub the same finger on the bayonet.

Also good as an ant-reflective coating on lenses - LINK (external link)

I have never seen a thread with such a variety of bad advice.

WD-40, NO NO NO, ....... WD-40 is for water dispersal, it is not a lubricant.

Silicon spray, NO NO NO ...... Once you get silicon lubricant onto glass it is almost impossible to remove, keep it well away from lenses.

The nose grease would work if you live in a warm enough climate to have a greasy nose, Soap could dry up and leave a residue. A tiny smear of vaseline works but attracts dust.

The best bet is the candle, but dont light it :D

I put a tiny drop of dishwashing soap on my finger and rubbed it into the groove of the hood for my 100-400L. One year later it still slides on and off smoothly, but also holds tight when it clicks into position.

Well I live next door in Kent and I don't seem to produce much nose grease.

I have to visit Hastings next week so I shall look out for sweaty noses :D

push your nose up against a clean window and then tell me you don't have any grease! :)

Do you guys wipe it clean after you do this? do you wait for it to dry first then remove?
eg: removing the candle wax, dish soap etc.

Lubricating something like this is best done with very small amounts. That's one reason why I prefer nose grease or pencil graphite - it's very difficult to use too much.
