    I don't think it is that easy for any of us here to tell what really happened to you camera and lens. If you depend on your equipments for livelihood, then you should send them to the authorized dealer to have a look.

    It would help if you at least mentioned what equipment you were using.

    Your profile lists a Canon body, so I assume the EF 50mm 1.4?

    If you Google that lens problems, AF motor failure is one of the problems some owners have with it, so it's likely to be a lens problem ... but this is pure guess work.

    One way to check is to try other lenses without problems on your camera, and put your lens on another body that has no known problems.

    You might have accidentally dismounted the lens....I had the same problem and was heading to Canon singapore when i tried to remove the lens and found out that I had accidentaly dismounted it.

    so is the autofocus working now? sometimes it can be just contact problem, just dismount (just turn, dun need to detach your lens) and remount the lens will get the aotofocus back again.

    If there's really a problem, just bring both back to the Canon Service Center...
