Question about Nikon 55mm f/2.8 AIS Micro Nikkor Lens
The barrel ring to focus to various distance is frozen. I have to use extreme force to turn the ring. The aperture works normally. Is there a way to loosen up the focus ring?

SOURCE: Sticking aperture
Yes. A good camera technician can partially disassemble the lens and then thoroughly clean the blades and the rest of the aperture diaphragm mechanism. This is commonly referred to as an internal CLA (cleaning, lubrication, and adjustment). This is a very nice macro lens and it is worth repairing if it otherwise is in exceptionally nice condition.

Are you sure it's the zoom ring that's stuck, and not the focus ring? The focus ring doesn't move when the camera is in autofocus.
If it's indeed the zoom ring that's stuck, you can spend more money than the lens is worth in repairs, or buy a replacement (circa 35 dollars on ebay) for dreadfully cheap. Good luck.

If you just purchased the lens I would take it back sounds like the lens is jarred and defective should still be on warranty

has the lens stuck up? put it temporarily on 'M" and try to turn the focus ring. this should be freely turning;
otherwise you may want to check the camera body to lens electrical contacts (silver).. a small dab of alcohol to a q-tip.. make sure its not that wet..then try to clean the contacts.

I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-focus.
