Pentax DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL focus sticking

I am having trouble with a Pentax DA 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 AL kits lense that will, often have trouble ceasing to autofocus on occasion due to a sticky focusing ring. I have taken the best care with it and owned for only a few months. Can someone here describe if they had a similar problem? The problem seems not to have improved with increased usage. It has been kept in a case in my bedroom, and no stray contaminates have been allowed near it. Any suggessions would be helpfull.

Unfortunately, it should either work or not. In your case, it sounds like "not". However, you still have the warranty, so I'd just send it back and have it fixed.
