Question about Canon EOS 550D Rebel T2i Digital Camera
Pushed red release button & tried to unscrew by hand but it will only move about 1/8 of a turn .
Normally, these lenses do not 'unscrew'. When you push the red button, it releases the lens catch and then you rotate the lens a short ways counterclockwise, then gently pull forward on the lens while holding the body of the camera and the two units separate. It is possible you have gotten some dirt into the lens latching mechanism. Try returning the lens to the locked position, press the red button, rotate the lens to where it stops and then returning the lens to the locked position and repeat several times if the lens does not lift out when you hit the movement stop. This may allow you to get past the dirt. Otherwise, take it to a camera shop, particularly if the camera is still under Canon warranty.
