One other thing I did between magically started focusing and remounting, was to make sure the lens was properly seated in the mount. When I made sure it was locked in, it began to focus.

But as long as it clicks in place it's enough?

Yes.

But, as I said, it still died.

How long would you say it took from you started having problems with it until it died completely?

Hard to say. I remember it going very quickly once I got to stage 3 (taking off, remounting).
