The safest and simplest thing would be to send it to Sony for repair.

With the prices of the 16mm now, I don't think it's worth doing that.  They sell for $99.99 at Sears.  Just a CLA could cost that much.  The best thing to do is buy a new one.

If it was me, I'd bust out the screwdrivers first and take it apart to see if it's something I can fix myself.  Not much to lose with an already broken lens.
