Tokina 11-16mm Focus Ring jams?
  • I've got the old Tokina 11-16mn "DX" version (silver markings) and just bought a new DX II version (gold).

    On the new one, the focus ring gets frequently stuck when pulling it to MF, I'd say about 1/8 times. It basically sometimes doesn't pull down all the way in one place, and then locks the whole mechanism (AF motor isn't disengaged). If you then try to turn it, it fights the AF motor. That never happens on my old DX version, but I'm on my 2nd DX II with the same problem.

    Is that normal for the DX IIs or have I got 2 duff ones in a row?
