Question about Vivitar 100-400mm f/4.5-6.7 Series Lens
I have had the lens for about 2 years. the first year it worked great, but I went to use it the other day and it will not work with my camera anymore. When you try to auto focus it won't even respond. My smaller lens(18-55) works fine. So, I know it is not the body of the camera(Canon).
Clean camera lens and body contacts with a pencil eraser,be sure to hold the contacts face-down to prevent
eraser rubber from falling into the body and vigorously scrub the lens
contacts with the eraser.
Check switch on lens
the other suggestion would be to see if the lens would work on another camera, if it doesn't well then you will know its the lens and not the camera.and then my friend my advice is to send it in.
