It is a relatively simple job to readjust the focusing mechanics of the 
75-150 zoom lens. I do not remember the specifics, but it is nicely detailed 
in one of Thomas Tomosy's books on camera repair. I don't remember which book 
(book 1 or book 2), but you should be able to find it in your local library. 
Probably the screws that hold the adjustment of the focusing barrel have come 
loose thru vibration or otherwise. If I remember there are two places where 
adjustments are made. You adjust one and it throws the other out of 
adjustment and you have to adjust it. Back and forth until both adjustments 
are correct. It really was simple and took only a few minutes, but get the 
book and follow the instructions.
