How to repair or unstick Sigma K zoom 100-200mm macro - tele focus stuck at infinity


Remove the lens from the camera, set MF on the lens, try gently to free it by hand. If this works, clean the contacts on the lens and camera body - if not, it needs repair.

Auto focus failure


My experience with lenses is that they either work or they don't. If it does not work "as you usually used it", then there is a problem inside the lens and not something the average photographer can repair. Lenses are quite fragile, a slight knock on one occasion can damage the inner bits which are very intricate and more so with motorised lenses. I have experienced a battery problem error message through a damaged lens housing and the battery also subsequently got damaged through short circuit inside the lens mechanism. Send it for a check-up and repairs!

Is there an adapter for Tokina Rmc 1 3.5-4.5 35-135mm Zoom Lens to fit to panasonic gh2 m4/3?


Perhaps. Tokina makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens already has an m4/3 mount then you won't need an adapter at all. Some Tokina lenses take the "universal" T-mount. In this case remove the current mount and put on an m4/3 mount. If it has some other fixed mount, m4/3 adapters are available for some of them. It all goes back to the mount already on the lens.

Did you clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser or with something else? If memory serves F4 is wide open on this lens, right?

It seems that you have either a faulty lens or one which is performing outside of the minimum quality standards. You have clearly done everything possible to try and eliminate all other causes. Looking at the firmware updates for your camera, none of them mention an issue involving your lens but you may wish to ensure that you have the latest firmware anyway.

All you can do is to contact Canon customer care to request that the lens is exchanged.

My Tokina 12-24mm /f4.0 for Canon got a little wet. When attempting to take pictures I get a ERR 01 message in my canon. Got the same error when I attached the lens to a second canon.


One of the internal circuits on the lens got more than a little wet. How long did you let it dry before putting it on the camera (which applies voltage to the possibly still wet circuit and probably shorted it out) ?. It sounds like a trip to Tokina is in order, unless you want to start a career as a repairman yourself

I have a Cosina AF Macro 100mm lens that I used on


you should be able to use that lens with it. As long as it attaches to the SLR body ok. The thing to be aware of is with better technology in the newer camera you may have AF issues with that particular lens.

Tokina f2.8 100mm macro nikon mount. setting apature and shutter speed. little manual with lens not very informative.


Turn the aperture ring to the smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it there. Set the aperture and shutter speed on the camera body. You didn't specify which camera you're using, so I'm afraid I can't give you details there.

You will find all the information in the camera manual, not the lens manual.

I don't know if I can help you. But I will try a guess. Some cameras focus on 1 point and it is not necessary the center. Maybe if you give your camera a point to focus on then keeping your fingers half cocked on the shutter shift the focus off-center to however you want to compose it, then click.
But if it was working properly before and then stopped working properly, did you lend your camera to someone, drop it or subject it to impact? I don't think anything is really wrong but I could be wrong. Have you checked the AF/MF button. Could someone may have accidentally pressed it?
If you are using the macro lens, did you check the camera's distance limits? I understand that the 7D actually focuses faster than the Canon EOS and Pentax. Canon and Pentax need to hunt that's why they take longer.
