Is it possible to damage a lens like Canon EF 50 mm f/1.4 USM by applying pressure to the front element which extends while focusing? When I was attaching the lens to the camera, I forgot to retract the above-mentioned front element and as a result pressed it quite hard with the palm of my hand. Could the pressure have caused damage to the lens?

Hello everyone! Before investing in some serious lens, I'd like to test the Canon 50 1.4 on my R6.Is any of you using this combo? Except for the softness of the lens, are the focus problem totally resolved due to the mirrorless system?Thank you! :-)

Anyone has experience with the 50 1.4 at video servo mode? With my lens the servo focus is not smooth. But in one shot mode I think it's fine, fast and accurate. Thanks.

Hello everyone, I used to have Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART. But for financial reasons i had to sell it. Now i want to get a new lens, but I am not sure which between these two lenses. -SIGMA 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM is one option, because on my Canon 70D it will be around 48mm, which is good for almost all purposes.

Hello All, Posting on DPR after a long time. Until few months back, my setup was, 1. Canon 60D + EFS 15-85 for general photography 2.
