Auto lense stopped working. other lenses work fine EOS 5D

I've had a ef 50mm1:1.4 lense for my Canon EOS 5D sinse august and it has worked fine. Suddenly it stopped working. using the the automatic setting...when I push the button to take the picture nothing happens. I did take a few photos in the cold air yesterday at about 36degrees and it seemd to work fine. When I use a different lense on it works fine.
Thank you,

Try cleaning the contacts on the lens. Use a clean pencil eraser and hold the lens upside down so that the eraser debris falls onto the table and not into the lens. If this doesn't fix the problem then you need to have the lens repaired.

Does my Sigma 28-105 mm Aspherical for film camera work on my Canon 5D Mark III?


If the Sigma lens mount is a Canon FD fitting then you can get an adapter FD to EF that will allow you to use the old lens in manual mode. If your camera isn't designed to take EF-s lenses then they will not fit on the camera. My EF-s lenses will not fit on my 6D.

Hello, We have a Canon EOS Rebel xti & the Canon EFS 18-55mm that originally came with the camera. We have been using the camera with no problem for about 2 yrs when one day the Auto focus stopped...


I've seen that before and in my experience it's usually due to the autofocus motor going. Your best bet would be to contact the Canon Imaging in your country and see what they suggest you do.

Is there an adaptor that will make it possible to put older style byonet Zeiss cine primes onto a Canon 5D Mk11?


The short answer is yes, in fact the "Red One" does just that. Now where to get these adapters is another story in itself as most are custom made to communicate with the camera. Adapters to mount "Medium Format Lenses" have been around since shortly after Canon introduced the EOS camera, with better then expected results. The only one the was and still is a huge let down is going from Canons own manual focus lens to the auto focus, you can find them cheap but you loose. I've personally used on a Canon EOS system Medium format Prime lenses from Hasselblad, Pentax and Mamiya. If you go into e-Bay and do a search for lens adapters you'll find a huge assortment.
Cheers have fun with it

I have a canon fd 28mm 1 : 2.8 lens and I am trying to find a camera that works with it


The FD lenses were mainly for film cameras. I used this lens on a Canon AE1-P. If you have a modern digital EOS with an EF mount you can buy an adapter (FD to EF) so the FD lens can be used on the EOS

I just purchased a Sigma 2.8 f=28mm for canon but I don't know if it will fit my Canon EOS 500 N (same as Rebel G) 35mm SLR film camera. Can you help with this question.


Canon EOS 500N has an EF lens mount, so all lenses with Canon EF mount will fit. All lenses with MF and EF-S won't fit. If you purchased Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX, then it have EF mount and will fit EOS 500N.

Ol filme camera lenes fit mycanon ef-s digital eos 1000D


Hello,

are your old film lenses FD or EF mounts ?
(Is the old film camera a Canon ?)

EF will fit EFS fine. My expeariance is with the EOS 3000 EF film camera (2002 -etc) and these work fine.

If you have Canon FD, there are some lens converters out there however I have not seen any yet which electrically connect and there is no AF. All Manual focus.

I have used Olympus OM mount adaptors with manual focus to mount older/different mount lenses with some success (As an example).

Best idea is to search ebay for your mount converters.

Transfering my ef lenses to digital cameras


Hi Marc! Almost all EF lenses, including the two you listed will work on the Canon Digital SLRs. On the Digital SLR they will have 1.5x the magnification that they would have on a 35mm camera. Your 28-90 will be like a 42-135mm and the 75-300 would be like a 112-450mm. This is because the image sensor on the Digital SLR is smaller than a 35mm negative.

Compatible lenses


All Canon EOS cameras (including the film Rebels and the digital Rebels) can use the same EF lenses.

There are some Canon lenses named EF-S that will only work with recent models of Canon digital SLR cameras, but EF lenses will work with all Canon digital SLRs.
