In short, you won't. All Canon Digital SLR's use the same lens mounting system as your EOS 500n and new lenses are very expensive especially for those who have purchased full-frame models.
As a result, demand for the lenses which fit your camera is very high and so prices are high as well: it's just basic supply and demand economics. There were cheaply made kit lenses available with your camera when it was new, but like most kit lenses they weren't built to last, so most of the older ones are either non-functional or have been scrapped after owners upgraded. All that leaves are the higher quality, well built, lenses from the time your camera was made which are far cheaper than new lenses but still comparatively expensive.
If you want cheap lenses then you've picked the wrong system. Buy an older FD mount Canon SLR if you want to stay with Canon; you'll then find that lenses are so cheap that they're often offered for free on your local FreeCycle group. The same source is where I've got all of my manual focus (and some AF) SLR equipment over the last few years.
cover lense with toilet paper spray silicon oil on cover(you can buy at walmart in auto parts section)and mechanism,if you get on lense clean with rubbing alcohol and qtip and soft white t-shirt!!!! :)
This blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But for the A610, you might want to extend your zoom all the way out before removing the camera's batteries. Note that the A610 has four shutter leaves instead of two, so pay particular attention how they're assembled if you remove the lens ring. Also you'll be applying the ring loosening rubbing alcohol around the barrel's perimeter instead of the front as shown in the procedures. One other thing, try not to get any alcohol on the lens itself:
Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try. You're also more likely to be successful trying these than going inside the camera:
It worked. I just gently nudgged the extended(stuck) lens to one side by hand. (the side which had the gap.) There was a click sound and the lense housing fell back in place. Sweitched off and switched on again and the lense started working fine. thanks.
This could be your problem. I haven't worked on your specific model camera however the idea and construction has been basically the same in all the cameras that I've opened and fixed. Inside the lens assembly, right behind the front optic there are two magnets that are opposite each other. These magnets are there to close the lens cover when it detracts. A common problem with these small compact cameras are that they are dropped or subject to some kind of impact and the magnets come loose (there actually put in with a cheap little snap to save money) and the lens can not retract. The camera stops functioning because the lens can't find it home position, thus your left with a very expensive paper weight.
So what's the solution? Well, if your handy you could get yourself a pt. 0 philips and open the camera. Be careful of the capacitor (it looks like a battery), it can remain charged for several months and depending on the condition could hurt you bad. Once the cover is removed you can remove the lens assembly and further disassemble it. Make sure that you mark with a pen the position of the lens because you will have to reassemble it exactly or the camera won't focus. once you pull the CCD pickup from the back of the lens you will see the out of place magnet. Put the magnet back, add a very small amount of Crazy Glue to it, and reassemble in reverse order. Your camera should be as good as new.
The E-500 body has a "bayonet" twist & click attachment for the lens. There is no way that a simple screw threaded lens can attach to the camera directly.
The lens that you have are designed to screw into the front of the original Olympus lens.
I have seen some of these adverts on auction sites and they are worded something like "The wide angle / Tele lenses are simply mounted in the front of the Olympus EVOLT E-500 / E-330 / E-300 standard ZUIKO Digital EZ 14-45mm lens, or any other lens with 58mm filter thread."
Which maybe isn't clear enough.
So the bottom line is that you need an Olympus lens to use the other lenses you have bought.
Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
Have you tried Canon customer support?
If the camera is new[ish] you may get it fixed under warranty. A repair price will be high.
You could just gently push it back.
Or compose your picture to miss that side of the image
Hello, Im "Darntoothysam" and heres how to fix it for FREE, but ONLY if your lens is stuck at an angle.
Heres a trick for you, you might be able to fix it yourself. With the lens pointing perpendicular to the ground, place the edge of the lens on the edge of a table or counter. NOT the flat round front section of the lens, the curved edge or side only. Position the lens on the table and press on it so that you are pushing the lens back towards the center to straighten it out. You may need to press slightly hard, don't worry, its already damaged so youre not going to hurt it if you don't push with all your might! Keep pressing on the lens, if it doesn't pop back in push slightly harder. This will either work, or it wont, like I said, just don't put all your weight on it. If it pops back in place, it will probably work just fine again!
