Zoom ring trouble
Sep 5, 2008

I've started noticing a problem with my D70s kit lens (18-70mm DX). I can often feel a little "catch" at around 35mm, and at times it won't go below 24mm (towards 18mm) at all.

Has anyone had a similar experience? Any idea what the problem might be, and if it's worth the cost of a repair? Is it likely to get worse? Could this be the result of shooting in a light rain?

(I posted this several days ago in the Lens Talk forum, but I haven't received any replies there. Maybe I'll have a larger audience here.)
