Canon 350d problem

I'm having problems with the efs 18-55mm lens supplied with the camera. Since removing the lens to try an alternative the camera has been unable to auto focus in poor light. If I point the camera in automatic mode at the TV or into a well lit area the auto focus works well. If I point it into an even slightly gloomy area the lens makes a noise as if it is trying to focus but never manages and I'm unable to take a shot. The camera is fully charged and I've tried resetting to factory settings. Basically the auto focus isn't working. Any help?

Re: Canon 350d problem

The only thing I could think of is theat the contqacts on the camera body are out of alignment or damaged through putting the alternative lens on. I ant see the camera so cannot say for sure You must eyeball it your self to see or get onto Canon It will cost of course -lots

I was wondering if lenses from a Canon 35mm camera will work with this camera?

When choosing a lens for your Digital Rebel XT, look for EF or EF-S on the lens. Film lenses with the EF designation will work on your digital camera, but AF or older lenses will not fit. Trying to force them on may damage your camera.
When using a film lens on a digital camera, there will be a 1.6x conversion factor. This means that a 50mm lens will be closer to a 70mm lens in reality.
