Question about Cameras
When I turn on my camera the lenses don't come out all the way and if I take a picture it comes out really blurry..
Camera's and lenses are not to be sat on. ;-)
It's probably bent or something got broken within the lens itself. There is no other solution than have the lens/camera repaired or buy a new one.

The camera and lenses you mention are non-autofocus equipment and have a different mount than newer ones. Your best choice for reliability, price, and ease of service would be one of the Canon EOS digital SLRs. Second choice would be Nikon D series. Minolta autofocus lenses used on the older Maxxum series film cameras can be used on the new Sony digitals, but Sony is new to digital SLRs and their track record remains to be seen.

Which type of lens mount, what digital camera.
Nikons will fit older Nikon lenses.
Canon it seems only fits AF lenses
Olympus digital only takes their own new mounts.
Minolta lenses will fit the new Sony/Minolta digitals.
Pentax digital will take any K-mount or older thread mount. Need to change some menu setting though. Need a K to 42mm for the thread mounts.
Mounts are all different, so a Canon won't fit a Nikon, Sony or Pentax and vise versa.

Your problem is a simple one: technology doesn't stand still.
Your lens was designed to work with Canon technical protocols which existed seven years ago and things have advanced somewhat since then.
With some third party lenses it's possible to send the lens to the manufacturer's service agent and pay to have it serviced and updated, but this cannot be done with your lens.
You'll have to buy a more recent lens model if you want to use it on your Rebel T1i. Older Canon lenses should mostly still work (unless Canon clearly state otherwise) as Canon will have taken their design into account on later bodies, but Canon have no interest nor any reason to make their later bodies able to use older non-Canon products.
Sorry that this is not the answer you hoped for, but I hope that you have still found it to be of some use and that you take a moment to rate my reply.

Honestly you guys! If you buy a new car, do you take your old carburetor with you and whack it on the new car?? Of course you don't. New cameras, particularly digital ones are designed and optimised to work with the lenses sold with them. F with F and D with D. Why pay the price for a D-SLR then try to use an old lens? Either buy an old camera second hand that is compatible with the lens, or buy a lens that is compatible with a camera. But don't whinge when things don't marry perfectly. MMOTPM Perth WA AUS
