Thanks for the reply. I tried your method but, with a half press of the shutter button, I still can't turn the focusing ring.

When the camera is set to auto focus only, does the ring spin? [Spin and do nothing is typical for all focus by wire lenses when manual focus is disabled in camera settings]

How about when it's not mounted on the camera? [or mounted with the camera switched off?]

If the lens itself is jammed, there is nothing the camera settings can control.
