Question about Olympus 40-150mm f3.5/4.5 Zuiko Lens

2 Answers

Can the 40-150mm be used in AF mode with EC14?

The lens manual states that the EC14 can be used in MF mode. Does that mean it can ONLY be used in MF mode or one can use the lens in MF w/ the EC14 attached behind it? I'm contemplating buying this adapter to extend the range of my kit zoom lens but only if AF is enabled. Also, how good is this adapter in terms of IQ when working in conjunction with the 40-150mm?

The EC-14 works in both modes AF and MF. You will lose approximately 1-2 f stops but still should work fine in good light

My sigma lens will not zoom all the way

Be aware, most camera's only allow AF to work as long as the aperture is greater than 5,6 (greater aperture means smaller number) So your lens only works from f 5 to 5,6. The last part where the aperture goes to 6,3, the AF won't work. So as long as your setting is on AF, the camera can't focus from a certain focal lenght. Switch over to MF and you should be able to use the zoom all the way.

I have a Canon Rebel T2i; when I bought the camera, it came with a Canon EFS 18-55mm lens. This lens had worked perfectly for me for a year; though one day when I removed this lens to use a telephoto lens...

Sorry, but there's nothing you can do as that's a professional repair only.

Your fix options are to replace the lens, or to send it to Canon for a repair (usually fixed cost) or to simply learn to live with manual focus until you can afford one of the first two options.

You might even prefer MF as you always focus upon what you want rather than on what the camera thinks you want. The extra few moments it takes to capture an image often result in more thought and better compositions as well and you get a far longer battery life.. Personally, I very rarely ever use AF.

AF=Auto Focus. With an autofusu capable body, the camera will automatically focus for you using preset focusing zone. Move the Switch to:
MF and it becomes a manual focus lens, where the photographer has to manually focus on his subject.

Bought a Sigma DG 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 autofocus for my Nikon D40. When the lens is attached the settings get locked on MF. Is there anything I need to adjust to fix this problem? Charles

The Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG will not autofocus with the D40 since the lens does not feature an internal focusing motor (HSM). The D40 does not have an AF motor in the body and hence it can autofocus only with lenses featuring an integrated motor (eg. Nikon AF-S lenses, Sigma HSM lenses, Tokina DX II series etc). Unfortunately you can use the said lens only in MF mode.

Lens is jammed....

Try switching between MF and AF mode and seeing if you can free the lens. If not then your AF motor has probably locked up and will need professional attention to release/repair.

Sigma 70-300mm lens defaults to manual focus

It will default to manual through the viewing screen. It will only work on automatic, using the viewfinder. Make sure you also set the focal length (lens to shutter distance). You might also have a mf / af switch on the lens. This also only works through the viewfinder.

Manual Focus won't work

Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.

Autofocus on 300mm 2.8 IS not working with 50D

Make sure the AF/MF mode button on the lens is set to AF.
What focusing mode do you have selected in the camera? Single Shot, AI focus or AI Servo? 
If Custom Function "C.Fn IV -1 Shutter button/AF-ON button" is set to option 2 or 3, the AF will start when you press the AF-ON button.
I hope this help you!
