    I know its obvious but if you think there is a problem with it just take it into the shop, we cant really see whats wrong through the internet but if someone comes along that has a 12-24 they should be able to help you.

    If this is your lens:

    THK Photo Products, Inc.

    Its internal focusing... front element shouldn't rotate.

    Does AF still work?

    That way, if you have something like a polarizing filter mounted to the front of the lens, focusing won't FU your polarizer setting because the front element rotated 60°.

    on the 12-24 (11-16 too) the front element actually slides in and out, not noticable really, becasue the whole front isnt moving.

    maybe that explains it a little bit better haha
