it could be that the af isn't disengaging. Put the af-mf selector on to mf and see if that helps.

The AF drive shaft should be withdrawn with the lens release button. Try marcusBMG as switching to MF will withdraw the shaft as well.

Is this a lens with a "Ricoh pin"?

No no! It's the kit lens of my k50! 18-55! Red color kit lens of my red color K-50

Try switching MF/AF a few times while gentle twisting the mounted lens back and forth a bit to see if that releases anything. If that doesnn't work try a powerful flashlight and look where the AF shaft is supposed to engage and see if it appears stuck in the up (engaged) position. You may need to use the techniques used for lenses with the Ricoh pin to try to push it back down.

So sorry about this happening to you.

Are you sure the lens release button is working as it should?
If your lens is not WR, you may be able to see whether the bolt is retracting far enough to set the lens free to rotate the bayonet.

All I can suggest is to fiddle, wiggle and jiggle without too much force and hope something decides to move the way it should
