Question about Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USN Lens

1 Answer

Ultra Wide Angle Lens

I have a Canon T3i and in need of an ultra wide angle lens (10-22mm). I checked the entire planet and the cheapest price I found was $459.00 for a used lens. Is there any less expensive lens out there or is there any tricks that I can use that will give me the same result that the 10-22mm Canon does?

Ultra-wide lenses are going to be expensive no matter what. If you're willing to go with third-party lenses you can save some money with something like a Sigma http://www.adorama.com/SG1020EOS.html ) or a Tamron ( http://www.adorama.com/TM1024EOS.html ).

SOURCE: My canon EF-S 17-85 IS

There are moving contacts inside the lens which communicate focal length data back to the body via a voltage level, and they have either become worn or dirty.

Either way, when you set the lens to 35mm or less the voltage which passes the information drops out and the camera signals the error 99 to inform you that the lens has stopped talking to the camera.

This is not a user fixable item. The lens must either be repaired or replaced and the problem will get worse if left unrepaired. Contact an official Canon Service centre in your country, you'll find that there is usually a fixed cost repair menu, and often if the fault is a known issue the repair might be free even if the lens warranty has expired.

I HAVE A CANON EOS REBEL T2 35MM FILM CAMERA AND AM PURCHASING A CANON TI1. CAN I USE THE SAME LENS ON BOTH CAMERAS?


Yes, you should be able to use them. Be aware, moving to digital there is a 1.6 crop factor. The means your 100 mm lens will have the field of view (FOV) of a 160 mm. No, it does not mean it is a 160 mm it is the fFOV is the same as a 160 mm. Also, at the other end is were you will most want to purchase a wide angle lens.
Example: your 28 mm film lens now has the FOV of 44.8, not wide angle. As you can see wide angle is where the move to digital crop sensor cameras lose out. To get back to wide angel you would need a 17 mm lens, that would give you 27.2 mm FOV.
To figure FOV take the lens multiply it by the crop factor. On a Canon it is 1.6, on a Nikon it is 1.5, the 4/3 sensor is 2.0.

Permanent smudge or scratch in coating of front element. Price of a new element? Is the element able to be re-coated?


Re-coating is not usually possible and will cost more than a new lens element.

The front element is one of the most expensive parts of the entire lens so replacement is often not cost effective. Fitting it and ensuring correct optical alignment is not a DIY job.

The real question is whether the marking is readily visible in the images and if so whether it's a minor artefact which can be edited out? If so, then repairs to the lens are simply not worth doing.

Does Tokina-12-24mmF/4Pro DX complies with Nikon-D3 FX Format


Barrel distortion like you describe can always be a problem, especially at ultra-wide focal lengths like yours at 12mm. Some of this can be compensated for in software... Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Elements do a reasonable job, IMO, Bibble Pro (www.bibblelabs.com) does even better, especially with the 3rd party plugins like Percy perspective correction. These are things we have to live with when we have smaller sensors and ultra-wide angle lenses. There is nothing wrong with your lens, you will probably find that this distortion is minimized if you use a longer focal length (say 14mm) and/or stop down the lens a bit.. try f8, wide angle lenses have huge depth of field.

Have you ever heard the expression "Good, Fast, Cheap ...pick any two" ? Well, it's that situation. The kit lens is cheap, and it has a good zoom range (including wide-angle) but it's not very high quality. The best lens for you is probably the 17-55 EF-S -but it is $1000. It is a great lens, and it's efficient and light sensitive, along with image stabilization. Without knowing your budget, I would also recommend the 28-135 EF IS, but it doesn't cover the wide angle range. That one is $400. There's also the 17-85mm, which also has Image Stabization. That one is about $500.
