Hi there!  Newbie here hoping to get some confirmation as to why my lens is malfunctioning. Unfortunately I dropped my camera (Canon Rebel T2i) this past weekend and ever since my autofocus on the 18-55 mm lens has not been working properly.  Manual focus works the same as it had before. Whenever I try to autofocus, the focus lens does not move but it sounds like there is a motor running.  I actually took the lens apart to see whether it was a flex cable that had broke -- didn't really look...

A few days ago, I posted a question about filter holders in the Beginners Questions forum, and a member suggested I might be best to post a copy in the Canon SLR Lens forum, too, as many members had a great deal of experience with rectangular filter and holders. I've copied my original post below - I'd be really grateful if I could ask for some advice with filters and filter holders for two Canon 58mm lenses, please? Several years ago, I purchased a few Cokin P-series filters for a Panasonic...

I'd be really grateful if I could ask for some advice with filters and filter holders, please? Several years ago, I purchased a few Cokin P-series filters for a Panasonic DMC-FZ20 bridge camera. However, around two years ago, I purchased my very first DSLR, a Canon 650D/Rebel T4i. I've recently begun looking into purchasing an ND graduated filter, but at the same time, was hoping to begin using my old filters once again - in particular the circular polariser. As I've been reading around, I've...

After some helpful discussion on this site about what wide angle lens to choose, I ended up purchasing the Canon 10-22 yesterday (in a close race over the new Tokina 12-28). Once I got home I took it out to take some pictures around the yard and was thoroughly unimpressed with it's optics.  Crazy amounts of CA, dominating the corners but still visible mid frame and really mushy sharpness outside the center 1/9th (by area) of the image.  I have read similar threads on this site and others...

Hello! So I'm pretty sure I asked something similar here in the forums, but for the last time to clear things up for me. Right now I am shooting with  Canon T3i, with the kit 18-55 and 75-300. I also have a 50mm 1.4 that is in repair right now. I'm looking to buy a Sigma 10-20 very soon so that will cover the wide angle of my bag. Now, I'm interested in purchasing an L lens to replace the kit. Since I already will have an ultra wide lens, and a 50mm 1.4, which will be the best for me? To get...

Hi Everyone, I am very new to photography and just purchased a Canon Rebel T3i and the kit lens was the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens.  I am happy with it so far but I feel already I need something with a bit more reach, the subjects that interest me most would be wildlife and sports which the kit lens doesn't handle very well.  I am curious what people who have used both the EF-S 55-250mm and the Canon EF 70-300mm would recommend.  I am on a bit of a budget which is why these are my...

Does it make any difference to use 18-200 lens directly instead of attaching 50-200 to 18-55 lens?

Hi, I'm looking to put down the EF-S 18-55mm soon. The IQ, focal range, focus, and maximum aperture isn't working for me. It's not bad though, from 18mm to 55mm. It's just the aperture, most of all. I'm looking for a cheap lens upgrade (sorry no L glass like the 24-105, 24-70, 17-40. I would buy it, but I'm looking for something cheap for now!). Looking for a good walkaround lens, that gives me landscape and standard telephoto portraiture/low light photos.  I'm really looking for: 1....

Hello,I am fairly new to photography and started with a tight budget, so my first camera is the Canon EOS 20D. I received it 2 days ago and am still getting used to the settings/features. Also, i bought a Canon prime 50mm f/1.8 lens and a Canon image stabilizing 18-55mm lens. I have already taken some amazing photography with this camera, and am enjoying it alot! I am looking for your opinion on this Camera/Lens set up, advice on what to change/do? I know it is an old camera and is it worth...
