Any experiences how to fix
Tokina SD 11-16 F2.8 (IF) DX ATX Pro A-mount MF focus ring jammed.
From 0.3 - 8 (endless) rotating is only possible with some force and crackling sound.
Back rotation is smooth.
When shaking lens there is sound of some little loose detail inside.
A screw perhaps?

Any ideas what might be broken?
Is this lens disassembling easy?
How much would cost repair?

Sony a55 lately "downgraded" to a700, Olympus E-P5, Panasonic GX7, Fujifilm x20.

It sounds like a screw has come loose. Google "Tokina 11-16 infinity focus issue" to see several YouTube videos on how to disassemble the lens. It's fairly straightforward.
To see is to enjoy. To see beyond is to rejoice.
