Canon 50mm f1.4 Not Focusing
Mar 16, 2011

I am sure that no one can give me an exact answer but I am hoping that I might get some ballpark ideas. My Canon 50mm f1.4 lens is no longer focusing. I have tried this lens on both a 20D and a 60D with same results. The lens will focus a few times and then stop working completely. It will just sort of click when you press the focus button. My guess is that there is something wrong with the internal lens motor or else it needs lubricating. I am debating whether it is worth sending in for repair or not. Currently the lens sells for about ~$400, and it is not a lens that I have used much. Does anyone have any clue what the repair costs might be? Is it worth repairing? Not happy about having to spend the money but also not happy about having a useless lens. Thanks in advance for your responses.
