Sorry the sample images are missing. Flickr has been bought by Smugmug and I'm not yet comfortable with the TOS.

If it is condensation, perhaps after letting it sit in a warm, low-humidity room for a while, then while still there working the zoom in and out numerous times might "air it out" and dissolve the accumulation.

Agreed, but I don't think the condensation is so persistent. It's probably just a matter of waiting longer in circumstances where the temperature and humidity suddenly change, but it's made difficult because the condensation isn't on the front of the lens.

Right. But when most zoom mechanisms are used, it tends to draw and circulate air into the interior of the lens as the elements move during the zooming process, and expel it also. Some degree of movement also occurs when focusing- more so going near to far. If moisture is trapped inside, these movements under the right conditions might help to dissipate it.

Thanks for suggestion! I'll try to spot when the condensation occurs and give it a try.
