    Hi,

    My EOS EF 75-300 Ultrasonic lens focus ring has become very stiff to rotate
    towards the end of its travel (approaching infinity). The autofucus cannot
    override this stiffness and when I focus manually it's strong enough to
    change the zoom setting - very annoying. Does anybody know of a fix for this
    stiffness ? Is it a common problem with this lens ? I hadn't been using this
    lens a lot but I will need to use it a lot on holiday soon and really need
    to get the stiffness out - (don't suggest giving it a cold shower!!).

    Thanks

    Terry

    If nothing else, you can get a CLA (clean, lube, adjust) service done on
    it. Probably around $100, or just over.

    Probably nothing you can do. Take it to a repair shop.
