No I haven't had it serviced. Its been well taken care of by me for the last year but I don't know what happened to it or how it was taken care of for the first 20 years. Fixing it might cost $200 I'm just not sure if it's not better to just buy another Canon A-series or just sell out to autofocus completely... I'm in the middle of a photography class too!

Sorry I just miserable over the whole thing.

Thanks for your input.
