43mm focus ring below 2 mt

Hello,

I just realized after some time without using it that my 43mm doesn't focused anymore on close objects, so by checking to focus manually I found it sort of get stuck around 2 meters, it just won't get below, is like a mechanical sort of stuck... is weird because I haven't dropped it or anything like that...

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Florian

Ouch, bad luck. Maybe it got crushed? Is the focus ring perfectly circular?

No visible physical damage whatsoever, the screw also moves but gets stopped like when you go to the other end (inifinte)
