I had the exact same symptoms with my 16-50 about a month or so ago. Turned out to be the lens (motor and circuitry needed to be replaced).

If the lens is out-of-warranty and you bought it with a credit card, be sure to see whether the credit card company provides an extended warranty as part of their service. Mine did and it saved me the full cost of the repair.

I bought it in Feb 2009 so it is definitely out of warranty even with my credit card extended warranty. But i am glad you reminded me, i forget to even check most of the time.

Any ideas how much this type of repair will cost me?
