I use a Canon 50mm f1.4 lens for the bulk of my photography.
For the second time since I purchased this lens three years ago, the focus mechanism has jammed.
The first time this happened, the lens was repaired under warranty. Now, after the warranty has expired, the lens has jammed again.
I'm wary of having the lens repaired again and had considered simply buying a new one, mainly for peace of mind (fool and his money and all that ). I've seen comments on various sites referring to the unreliabilty of this lens model.
Are these lenses inherently faulty?
Needless to say this happens two weeks before a trip to New York..
Any advice would be appreciated
