Wow, I have washed a cell phone before, and it still worked. Never thought a camera lens would survive that.

I wonder if I leave my 5D wrapped in a beach towel and throw it in the wash if it will get the sensor clean? :)

ps. No. Don't ask. I'm not going to find out.

Glad you were able to save it, but seriously: two pieces of glass? Everywhere I read it says six elements in five groups.

I guess it probably does have 6--when you look at the reflections in the lens you can count about 6. But there are definitely only the two lumps of glass in there. I wonder how they define "groups"? It sure looks like 2 pieces of glass and I can't see where it's divided into groups, but I'm sure one of our knowledgeable posters will have the answer.

Difference between the 50 1.8 and 50 1.4?

It's a wash.

If you throw it in the drier make sure to have it on delicates though. The hot setting for towels isn't good for these.
