Question about Cameras
Normally, at 18mm, the minimum aperture would be F/3.5, but it's stuck in F/5.0. Is this something that can be solved by myself?
If you are focusing very close that may be a consideration. But if it does not change at any focal length, and focal distance then it will need to be repaired. Or, try KEH.com for excellent quality used lenses. That lens can be replaced to the same or less than a repair.

Most likely something bad has happened. It out of warranty, usually its 5 years. This is a pro job, getting to anything inside a lens is a very special job. There are a number of places to send it out. Check http://www.acecam.com/srindex.html and write to one or two of the places for estimates. It could be $150 or more plus shipping and taxes. A new one is about $400+, you could check around the many on-line camera stores for a used one. Could be a simple electronic part or the iris blades are bad.

SOURCE: aperture ring won't turn
When the camera is set to autofocus, let the camera do the focusing. If you want to focus manually, turn off the autofocus so you can turn the focusing ring.
