Question about Canon Normal EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Autofocus Lens
I recently dropped my eos3 with canon 50mm 1.4 attached.
Since then the close focussing stops at about 1 m. Any less than that is impossible via auto or manual focus.
Any ideas for a do it yourself fix? Or should this be cheap to fix if I take it to a camera repair expert?
If the AF motor is still alive + spinning, this should be fixable without any replacement parts.

Hope this helps - good luck!
