Upload & Sell: On
After opening it up, I see no damage to anything except the beige outer housing that contains the AF/Manual switch and that damage is not enough to render the lens unusable.
Even after I removed the zoom barrel, it would only turn, maybe, an eighth of a cycle. I need to go back now and figure out how to get at the two-piece gear mechanism and see if I could, order a new gear assembly and get this working again.
Of course, I will probably need to order a ribbon cable or two, screw and figure out where the ribbon cables re-attach.
I will also consider selling it for parts. Optically and in AF, it is excellent.
