    I have a 150mm cf lens, and the rubber grip has become loose and spins on the focusing ring. Any way to tighten it up again, or re glue it. Any idea of what type of glue Hasselblad would use.

    I have the same issue with a 50/4 CF lens. I've thought about applying a drop or two of Krazy Glue (ethyl cyanoacrylate) at the edge of the grip, but I haven't tried it yet.

    I thought of doing this, but the rubber almost seems to have gotten bigger. Also when I have had my lenses serviced at Hasselblad in Canada they removed the rubber to work on the lens, and sometimes put new rubber on it. So I would not want a permanent glue.
