16-50 2.8 focus ring stuck

Hey everyone,

A seal seems to have come loose inside my lens and jammed up the focusing ring.
Has anyone ever had something like this happen to them and if so, how much was the repair?

Wow, you can actually see the seal. I'm sorry I don't have an answer. but it looks like it ought to be a "simple disassembly" reseat the seal, and re-assemble. But we don't know if the seal is intact or why it came off.

this seems to have a PDF for your lens on disassembly. I've had mine apart like 5 times in the last week messing with it, they're pretty simple but tedious.
