d7100 and new 80-400 af-s - mated forever?

I got my 80-400mm af-s VR and all that 3 days ago, and the d7100 later the same day.  Took them for a few hours of coastal birding yesterday.

They performed very well, and I was very please with the images.  However, today I cannot remove the lens.  Tried holding it lens down, lens up, all ways.  Talked to tech at Precision Camera in Austin tech, but they will not have a tech until after the weekend.  I have been able to change lenses with no problems before on this camera, and this lens has been on two cameras before.

Anyone any experience like this?  Any ideas?
