If the you are trying to focus on something that is one tone of color, in this instance it looks like the spot is black, all lenses would have trouble in that area

Sorry guys, I've should have written it better the first time. So I think it's the lens, but maybe it's the camera (K-7). So if you see in the video, around 24mm both zooming in and out, you see that something inside the camera or lens in falling(you see it better on the way back). It does not matter if I turn OS on or off. When the lens is off the camera or the camera is off, the lens work perfect. When I zoom with my old M lens, everything works OK.
You can see it's dropping a "frame" around 1 sec, and around 8 sec (video) The last part of the video is so you can try to hear the noise is makes when something inside the lens/camera is falling. Hope this helps!!

Sorry for bad english
