Thanks D. KEH would have been my next choice had my local guy not looked at this problem. He admitted to failing to properly tighten 4 screws which eventually loosened causing the rotating barrel. Fixed free under his workmanship warranty. He also re-lubed the focus gearing with a non-outgassing, non-mitigating lube which should solve this lens' in-ability to focus in temps below 24 degrees. We'll see. Now just don't drop it Steve.
