Nikon 80-200 f/2.8ED AF, Push-Pull Stiff...

    I recently acquired a mint Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8ED AF, push-pull zoom lens.
    The "push-pull" is somewhat stiff, yet very smooth. Is there an easy way to
    loosen it up a little, or will this occur naturally after use. I was told
    it had been sitting for a long time.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Let it sit in the sun to get warm and let the grease soften, then put
    through it's range of motion repeatedly?
