16-45mm zoom AND focus ring stuck!

Hey guys, looking for some expert advice here...

Recently aqcuired the 16-45 lens USED from a friend and it was working fine as of yesterday.

Then suddenly, the zoom ring wouldn't turn past 31mm and the focus ring also will only go about half way. I haven't dropped the lens or anything like that, and was looking for any sugggestions anyone as to troubleshooting this problem.

I'm very tempted to just take it in to the repair centre here in Vancouver, but wanted to see if the great people @ the pentax forum had any similar problem/advice!

Thanks much.
Mark! (converted pentaxian)
