If that is the one from KEH avoid it! I purchased it some time back and they described it way differently. After receiving it I felt I was nearly going to rip the mount off my camera. They happily took it back, and sold me a buttery smooth one for a whole lot more money.
The one they have has a serious tight spot as if something is bent/misaligned, and would require major overhaul with parts to fix to a usable condition.
The glass and body are in great shape though on it.
Thank you for your reply. No, I am not talking about one in KEH. I live in China and found this lens in a shop here. The tightness that I felt focusing the lens was nowhere near as bad as what you describe. It is quite tight, but still not difficult to focus. The tightness is also constant, not with a tight spot as your KEH sample had.
