Repair EF 50 1.4 or buy?
Nov 29, 2012

I have a 50 1.4 that won't focus - surprise, surprise.  Canon wants $133 plus shipping to fix.  Would that money be better spent on a new 1.8 or a different lens all together.

I shoot with a 7D and will probably stick to APS-C as long as my kids are around - 90% of what I shoot is there sports.  I already own a Tamron 18-270 which is a little flaky since my son dropped it and a 70-200L II which has my wife saying "no more money for lenses!".  I would like to have a good low light lens for indoor stuff though.  A small zoom seems appealing for flexibility but I know that to get anywhere close to the speed of the 1.4 in a zoom is more than I can justify right now.

Any advice would be much appreciated!
