I am not sure about that lens, but apparently in some (cheaper?) lenses you can damage the auto focus motor by manualing focusing while in AF mode.

Many firmly believe that, but no-one so far has come up with any evidence that it has ever happened (see You Will Break Your Lens If You Turn the Focus Ring in AF Mode in Busted! Digital Photography Myths). The 15-85 is not one of those lenses.

Many thanks for that clarification.
