24-70 F2.8 restiance at 50mm when zoom motion turns
5 months ago

Hello

I have a 24-70 which I use very carefully , not banging around , always in bag etc ..yesterday I was shooting at a family afternoon and all of a sudden the zoom motion hits a stop just at 50mm... exactly where the 70 to 50 mm inward motion is changing to the 50mm to 24 outward motion of the lens barrel ... it is not really stuck , but it needs some force to get over this point , a kind of resistance .

Any idea what this could be as I am afraid Nikon in France has a fixed (very high price) to even look & open this lens. So far I am disappointed with this lens as announced pro grade quality ... as I had already one repair for 300 Euro after 2 years as the lens was not properly adjusted / elements aligned and missed some sharpness ...which I just figured out after buying a 14-24 and comparing

Thanks Bjoern
