Hello Lensmate,
The attached photo is indeed my SAL1650 lens that I have had for several years.
As I mentioned to lehill, it gets worse and worse. I totally agree with you having a hard lens rather than a loose one, but it's quite a pain to force the zoom.
I continue my research for a possible purchase in France but not easy.
Thank you for your answers.

In case you haven't tried this already, I would suggest you zoom the lens in and out consistently for around 30 mins or longer,  to see if the action becomes smoother. If you haven't used the lens a great deal, this repeated action may help somewhat. Also check to see if there isn't any grit buildup around the ring.

Good luck.
