50mm Update26/12/2011 - 12:38 PM
The other day I wrote that my 50mm 1.8 Mk I lens had got stuck: both auto focus and manual focus didn't work anymore.
Well, there's good news to report! I found someone who is handy with lenses (takes them apart, converts his own lenses for macro use, etc. - quite a handy chap, apparently), and I asked him to have a look at my lens. He did exactly what had been suggested in the forum thread on here, namely take it apart and put it together again.
He's just e-mailed me to say that the lens is now fully functional again! Both manual and auto focus are working, hurray!
So you can expect to see new 50mm shots in my portfolio again.
And awaiting the arrival of the lens, here's an old 50mm favourite of mine from my portfolio, a shot of my friend Chris Simpson of Magna Carta, taken during a concert in The Netherlands a few years ago:
