I hear lots of talk of the 50/1.4 AF going out. Just wondering what you notice when it goes? Does it happen gradually? Or is it one day fine and the next day dead?
One reason I'm wondering is that my 50/1.4 seems to be quite inconsistent in focus lately; I haven't noticed that focus speed has changed.
It can either just go or it can start to get stuck at times, often near the near focusing end, the focus may get trapped there unless you nudge it or it may hesitate for a moment as it struggles past the sticky zone, it can be one day fine and the next day with the sticky issue which often then grows worse and worse, although sometimes if you live with it for months it can slowly get somewhat better again or it can just totally break, it depends
