Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
The zoom ring on my 18-55mm lens (the one that came with my D-40 kit) is locked/stuck. I can't turn it at all. Any ideas?
I have just bought seconhand a Canon 28-105 Ultrasonic EF lens. The seller admitted the lens had not been used for a while. After about a week of use the zoom ring began to stick at around the 50mm point.
My solution has been to remove the lens and gently "exersize" it by twisting the zoom through its full range about thirty or more times. It now appears to be working ok.

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.
