Question about Canon EF-S 17-85MM F/4-5.6 IS USM Lens
My Canon 17-85 IS also seems stuck at 17mm, though if I turn the lens upside down and am gentle, it will release. Not ideal tho'. Sounds like a loose element? I had not been 'rough' with the camera at all, so do not understand how this could have happened.
Any ideas? Solutions that don't involve hundreds of £'s at an Authorised Service Centre?
I had the same problem, but it was a case of getting a loose screw tightened up inside the lens.
I took it to an authorised dealer and it cost me the equivalent of about US$25 to get repaired, with the obvious advantage of not messing with the warrenty.
I also hadn't bumped my lens, and I only bought it in July, 2009.. so effectively, new. I did notice the zoom getting looser with time, and would fall out of the chosen zoom length when pointing down (and indeed, up).
