Question about Canon EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DOIS USM Lens

1 Answer

My camera lense will not focus automatically or manually.

Lense is a Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM; Camera Canon Rebel EOS
Is there a battery or something inside the lense itself? My other lense will focus w/ no problem. I did drop my case a while back and it acted up briefly at that time, but then was doing fine. Now, nothing.

There is no battery in the lens.  The lens receives power from the camera. Whether or not the lens is getting power, though, you should be able to focus manually.
When you say you can't focus manually, do you mean that you can't turn the focusing ring on the lens, or that when you turn the ring the image does not come into focus?
If you decide the lens needs to be repaired, I recommend sending it to Canon.  You can go to their website (canonusa.com if you're in the US), click on support, and follow the links.

Can i use a vivitar 70-500mm macro focusing zoom lense in my canon DS 6041 ( EOS rebel digital camera)


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Nikon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Canon camera. Assuming you have a lens with a Canon mount then yes, you can use it on your Rebel.

WILL THE ABOVE LENSE WORK WITH A CANNON DIGITAL CAMERA AND CANNON 35MIL CAMERA


Yes, it's suitable for 35mm EOS mount Canons and all digital models. If the digital SLR has an APS-C sensor then the image will be cropped and will give the same viewing angles as a 112-480mm on a 35mm camera.

Conon powershot A450 lens error


Try to use fresh batteries, and push the barrel in and out when it turns on to see if the 'binding' of the focusing gear can go away when you do this manipulation of the barrel.

If the error continues, maybe the camera needs service by Canonusa.com.

I could not, unfortunately, find a reference for an a450 on the website, though. Is that an older model?

If your AF motor is hunting then the lens probably needs to be looked at. I wouldn't recommend this as something to do at home so you will need to either find a repair shop if it is out of warranty or return it to Canon if it is in warranty.
