Last night my daughter had a stall at a Christmas fair, and I thought I'd go and have a look, and decided to take my camera.

Since I don't like the harshness of flash light very much, I thought it would be a good idea to take my fastest lens, a 50mm 1.8 Mk I. I don't use it very often, but I do like it, because it performs under the most difficult lighting circumstances.

Or maybe I should say performed. Because when I switched on my 20D and tried to focus, there was a sound like the camera was trying to get the lens to do something, while the lens wasn't cooperating. I checked if the switch was on autofocus, and it was. I tried different things, but my conclusion had to be that the lens is stuck - it won't focus - not even manually!

So no photos from the Christmas fair.

And what do I do with my lens?

Thanks, Colin. In the meantime, I think I may have found another solution.
