Zoom stuck at 70mm . Will not move- seems locked
hello, I've got the same lens, and I still have it, it work great now, but when I get it, this lens use to have the same problem, so I buy it for a very good price, and then I put my finger into it, and the problem with this kind of lenses is, they have inside a metalic part, like a belt where some electronical cards are fix on it, just by strong glue stick, then with the time one of those plastic orange elctronical card get loose enough to stop the focusing ring! so with a a wood clamp or wathever you will create yourself or find to gently press the card against the metalic support to fix them back, then you just have to remove every parts in order, oh, I will forget, when you take the all pieces apart the first time, you have to unscrew the auto manual switch then you unsud the two wire, then you will be be abble to take appart the other pieces! then sud them like it was, and the most difficult part would be to find back the diafragme exaclty how it was, if not, you wont make work it correctly! it means, you will think you are at 2.8, and you will be at 5.6 so it takes me maybe one 14hours in totall, but i tooke my time, then, those lenses are set with a laser tool, so after all that removing thing, you will take the risk to see your lens have like some wierd focusing effects! mine did not focusing right to the ifinity, just less than a half of millmeters before, then i repare this disfunction in manual focusing! ;) good luck and take a good long nap before to be ready and comfy to do that fox!
