Any ideas re problem with fish eye lens

RStyleRStyle Posts: 1,732 Captain
Tokina 10-17mm
Stored in camera bag with several other lenses. Dry closet. No humidity
Have not used it in several months
Took it out a couple of days and from the 10mm to maybe 14 mm setting it is smooth as usual but then gets difficult to turn to get to the 17mm setting. You do not have to force it but it is definitely much harder to turn. No grinding.
Moved it back and forth a few times but no change

No miracles expected but just wondered why it would happen. Expensive lens and would like to keep it
