It's my busy season as I am loaded down with hockey tourneys to shoot. Tonight I had my 70-200 f2.8 go haywire after a gentle "bump" from a kid's skate while he was jumping over the boards....(only the boot, not the blade, and it was so gentle I barely felt it.). Also the "bump" was on the lens hood....not the lens itself). Immediately after this my lens would not autofocus (kept seeking and bouncing around), and strangely enough the manual focus ring is frozen. It won't budge.

Anybody ever have this issue before. If I have to send it to Nikon, it will kill my business this year. I really need to find a fast solution.....even if it costs me some bucks.

Thanks all.
