Question about Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens
Hello! Just stumbled across your site - you guys really seem to know your stuff! I've got a problem for you - my 20D have been fantastic - shot a wedding on Saturday, and near the tail end of things anything I shot in side was dark. Didn't matter if I used manual setting or auto - flash didn't register with the camera, and the built in didn't seem to register either. Outside was fine in auto. When you look through the eye hole, everything is just so dark - even if it is not dark in the setting. It also has trouble in auto focus (because everything is so dark?) Is this fixable? Thanks!!!
If the camera is working properly with other lenses, then you have a problem with that lens. In M, you can set the aperture yourself, and the photos come out properly exposed. When the lens is set to auto, apparently it is going to minimum aperture and not responding to the camera's 'instructions'. The thing that makes me think so is that you say everything looks dark through the optical viewfinder. Normally the aperture stays full open so you can see and compose your shot, and only stops down to the correct aperture when you actually take the shot. I would suggest having the lens checked by an appropriate camera service shop.
