My guess is you just wore it out.   You have no idea how much wear was on it when you got it, then you pounded on it for quite a while ... nothing with moving parts lasts forever under heavy use.

It would be interesting if lenses came with actuation numbers on them the way cameras have shutter counts.  Just how many photographs ( or acts of focusing for autofocus lenses?) should a lens be good for before something fails?
