I was on vacation recently and some coke accidentally splattered on one of my DSLR lenses. It was dark and I was pushing a stroller, so I didn't see what was going on until it was too late.
I cleaned off the coke from the outside of my lens, but now the focus ring sticks and is hard to move. Everything else still appears to work fine. How should I go about fixing this?
I'm not afraid to open it up and clean it (it's just the relatively inexpensive 18-55mm kit lens that came with my Pentax K200D, and if I wreck the lens, it's already essentially unusable in its sticky state), but I thought I would ask here to see if anyone has any thoughts/ideas.
