So I went and grabbed my old 85mm 1.4 AF-D to play around with on my new F4 I picked up, but noticed it wasn't focusing. At first I thought it was the new body, so I threw it on a D7100 and had the same problem. Playing around with the focus ring I found it was very stiff towards infinity. After playing with it for a minute or two it started working in Auto on the body, but only out to about 20 feet. It wouldn't go any further.
I took it to my local (and trusted) camera store to get an estimate on getting it fixed, but the repair guy is out on vacation for the next 2+ weeks.
I'm just curious if anybody has had to get a similar lens fixed with the same issue, and if so about how much can I expect to pay? Normally I'm happy to repair my own lenses, but when the price tag of the lens starts to jump (or the parts become harder to find) I tend not to touch them.
I'm hoping its just a case of some grease drying up and needs a good CLA. Other opinions on what it might be?
