U need to recheck the applications for this lens, there are only a few things that can cause this, the lens is the wrong one for your camera, the camera body is defective, the lens is defective. There are no other choices, take the lens back and have them test it.

Hi bostromanna,
   We can think of  2 problems,
 Either you have purchased a wrong lens - The only option would be to return.
Secondly, you might not have correctly attached the lens :(
You can get an idea from the forum

any further help, let me know.
Thanks for using Fixya.

Why is my canon xsi suddenly not auto focusing?


Try removing the lens with the camera off and re-mounting it. Before doing so, check to make sure the contacts on the lens and camera body are clean and not damaged. If that doesn't help try gently pressing on the front of the lens (not the glass) while pushing the shutter release button half way down and if it works then you've got a poor fit between the lens and camera body.

Canon rebel auto focus has stopped working


It may be the lens try a different lens at your nearest photography shop as the auto focus is usually a lens problem. other wise try resetting your cam remove all batts including the lithium one and the CF card wait about 20mins then replace if prob still persists then try again without any lens and see if it trys to focus and make sure the shutter is working if its ok so far then u need to try a new lens at local shop and then if it works the body is ok if not then it needs a service!

Need Help, the auto focus of my canon 400D won't work.(I can still shot with manual focus)


Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Sometimes when i'm taking picture my flash wont stop blinking for a few seconds.


The 400D uses flash assisted focusing. In low light conditions the auto focus cannot get a focus lock so it pops the flash a few times so the lens has a chance to focus. You will notice this will go away when in the manual focus mode (the switch on the side of the lens).

The only way around this problem (as people in a photo think the photo has already been taken and looks away when the camera actually takes the picture) is to use a hotshoe mounted TTL Canon Speedlight (430ex or 580ex) which use an infra-red focussing beam.

Canon rebel xti focus issues


I think it might be a lens issue.
make sure you change the macro option. the macro must be activated if you are taking a picture of something which is close to the camera. if it's not activated, the picture will not be focused.
The same will happen if the item is far and the macro is ON.

Autofcous and manual focus do not work


excuse me if this is a dumb question but you wouldn't believe the things people do...., but in manual mode are you actually manually trying to move the lens? as manual mode means just that you take hold of the lens and turn it. If it wont turn it sounds like the lens is jammed and needs returning/repairing.

if taking hold of the lens and turning it works for manual mode, take the lens off and clean the gold contacts on both the camera and the lens with a pencil erasor this may bring the auto focus back to life, switch back to auto and try again, if not its most likely the lens but take the body to a canon store and try another lens just to double check the body is ok

drop me a line if i can be of further assistance

best of luck

Tamron lens for Xti?


if it is an auto focus lens that works on one eos camera, it should work on almost all of them. the only known exception is that some high end extenders will not fit the eos1dmarkII as it protrudes into the opening too far.
but a good rule is that if it fits without any obstruction issues, it should work. try cleaning contacts on the lens and camera body. if that doesn't fix it, talk to Tamron. you can use it manually, but will not be as easy and you would get less predictable results.

my suggestion is to always go with lens from camera maker.

sounds like there is an issue with the tamron lens. not the camera.
good luck
