Lens fail to auto-focus after 4 years of use.

Summary: I bought this Lens around 4 years, and it suddenly fail to auto-focus. the MF still working, but when I use AF, it keeps moving and never stop at the focus point. I asked around and it seems like mail-function of internal chip. I have other lens from Canon for 10 years and never has this problem.
Summary: My use: With C100 for corporate video. Interviews both on location and on set. Pros: This is a very flexible lens in that it lets in so much light that you can use it in nearly any shooting condition. The image is clean and the stabilizer works incredibly well for handheld shooting.
Summary: When you point the lens downward it will zoom in if you don't hold it to prevent the lens from zooming in. That's literally my only complaint... the photos are amazing, and the auto focus works really f-ing good.
Summary: I've owned this for about 8 years now and it has functioned well. However, it does have a design flaw where it allows dust speckles to escape into the internal lens. It doesn't really affect image quality but it's something to take notice.

I was looking for the perfect all-in-one lens that would allow me to get some nice portrait-style pics (with that sought-after bokeh), lots of depth of field for landscapes, as well as more flexibility in framing...
