Well it could be used but you may find the auto focus to be too slow and the aperture of f2.8 a bit dark for indoor sports. That lens is best used in the role it was intended — macro photography. Take a look at the 85mm f1.8 USM or the 100 f2 USM. They are reasonably priced and offer greater AF speed and low light ability.

Hope this helps

It seems that you have either a faulty lens or one which is performing outside of the minimum quality standards. You have clearly done everything possible to try and eliminate all other causes. Looking at the firmware updates for your camera, none of them mention an issue involving your lens but you may wish to ensure that you have the latest firmware anyway.

All you can do is to contact Canon customer care to request that the lens is exchanged.

I have a canon 100mm EF macro lens with a loose rear element section. How do I solve it?


You can TRY to see if the screws are loose on the back of the camera around the rear element.  Sometimes they look flush but need a couple of gentle turns to bring everything where it should be.  If possible you should use a JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) Phillips screwdriver so you don't strip the screwdriver head.  Don't use too much force - these are precision instruments and only need a certain mechanical tightness - too much can cause harm.
Unfortunately, if it's not those rear end screws, you'll have to send it in to Canon.  Fortunately Canon is very good about repairing lenses, even if they are slightly out of warranty.
Good luck

It's called "zoom creep" and not all that uncommon. You can try sliding a sheet of paper or a thin film under the ring to tighten it up, or use tape to hold it in place once you've got what you wanted. I would NOT squirt any liquids inside to unlubricate it.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS lens not focusing


I have had to replace the focusing servo motor is these before. The problem of seeking without locking in may mean the same for your lens. Do check for a dirty filter on the front and look to see if the rear optic is dirty or cloudy first. I'm assuming other lenses work fine on your camera.
