Does the camera recognize it? I mean when it is attached, does the camera show the Fstop etc?

In low light situations, connect a speedlite flash to your body (e.g. 430EXII or 580EXII). These flashes emit a AF assist beam to assist focussing in low light situations.

The auto focus will not work on my EOS 400D lense. ,I dropped the camera. The tele-scope lense works fine. I cleaned the contacts as suggested with swab & alcohol


You can take your camera/lens to a repair shop for a possible repair, however, this sort of repair, if it can be done may be pricey. I am sorry to tell you that cameras have a healthy sized strap and padded cases for a this reason. They are very easy to damage.You might try calling ahead to check with them. What happens when you try to use autofocus?

I need to find a solution to the prob.-Fixing the self focus .


Hello Devid,

Too sad news for a photographers but dont worry. As per your info i guess when it was dropped that time its come down and touch lense 1st. thats why the allientmant of focus are damaged. Just visit in a service center they will fix it. But its take some time remember. Dont worry about your lence till its ok just focus gear damaged. Maximum 40 - 60 $ you need to pay the service center.

The D40 does not have a focus motor, instead relying on a motor in the lens. This lens does not have such a focus motor, and thus will not autofocus with the D40.

Auto focus not working


Sorry but if you've tried all the usual fixes then there's nothing more that you can do. Either pay for a professional repair or continue to use the lens manually.

A professional repairer should be able to indicate what the likely costs are going to be and you can then judge whether repairs are cost effective.

Personally, I'd stick to manual focus as I've always preferred knowing exactly what I'm focussing on instead of constantly fiddling with buttons and menus to override what the dumb camera has locked onto.

Camera won't shoot with lens on Auto Focus


Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.

Auto focus problem


My first suggestion is to send it back if it is under warranty.

The grease probably got so thick, from the cold, that it caused too much resistance for the auto-focusing mechanism. You probably have damaged the focusing mechanism in the lens. You cannot repair this, yourself. I don't know how cold is too cold but it really shouldn't have done that.... Tamron makes cheap lenses. Try and exchange it for at least a Sigma.
