I dropped my Tokina last week on pavement, (fell out of my bag), anyway, I checked it over and there was no sign of visable damage. Well today I went to put it on for a shot and it was very hard to seat on the camera. Also hard to turn to remove. Everyting still works on it and the camera still recognizes it, it still focuses & takes images. Not sure how it hit, both lens caps were on and I have checked it very closely with my 24-70 and cant really see any reason for the now tight seating. Anybody had a similar experiece and know what to look for?

Look for returning it to get fixed. Have you ever seen a bicycle tire when a bike crashes and goes down? You spin the tire on the fork and the tire quivers in place while turning, taken out of its perfect circle.

It sounds like the mounting flange may be bent (very slightly). Check the lens mount and see if anything looks not quite straight.

Well I inquired about the issue with a lens repair shop in DC, based on my description of the problem, he said it sounds like the lens barrel has been damaged...about $150 parts & labor..
