If it looks yellow-orange when you look thorugh the lens then IMHO it has turned yellow.
I noticed that on mine when I shot some color film and it looked as if I had a 81 filter on it.

While your camera is in CLA it wouldn;t hurt to leave your lens in a window sill and see if it changes

For piece of mind on my part what tone of yellow should I look out for on my lens?
