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,
angeline

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.

What are lenses that are compatible with the canon eos 5d mark ii


You can use Canon EF lenses. Be careful not to use EF-S lenses, as they cast a smaller image circle for cropped-sensor cameras, not big enough for full-frame cameras.There are other third-party manufacturers that make lenses with Canon EF mounts, such as Sigma and Tamron. Each manufacturer has their own designation for cropped-sensor lenses, so you'll have to check the specifications for each of them.

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.

I just purchased a Canon EOS Rebel K2 35 MM film camera body. What lenses are compatible with this camera?


The Rebel K2 has the Canon EF mount. It is compatible with any EF lenses except the EF-S series. It will also work with third-party lenses that are compatible with the Canon EF series.

You can see the entire current line of Canon lenses (including the EF-S series) at

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

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.

Canon EOS 300d will not close aperture on sigma lens


Hi
It is well known that some lenses made by Canon for the EOS film camera range do not work well with digital SLRs. Canon lenses work fine but it may be worth checking if the Sigma has a known problem with EOS digtal bodies.

Martin

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.
