Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
I have an 18-55mm kit lens of the 400D. it's a USM f3.5/5.6... Last week, i brought my camera with me and took pictures around... Since then, when i got home, the plastic part in front of the lens cracked.. (pls see picture below) then after that happened, I had a hard time focusing... it was suppose to be smooth when you try to rotate it clockwise and counterclockwise. But then it's not. I think there's something that went inside it... maybe a very small piece of plastic. is there any way for a DIY solution for this?
It would be very difficult and not recommended to take appart a lens unless you can easily spot set screws around the area that you want to remove. One thing I would try is to lightly push on the broken off edges back and forth to set them up straight in as much a circular orientation as possible. Sometimes when a piece of any ring breaks off the remaining edges are facing inward or upward depending on direction of impact that caused it, and that way they rub against the encapsulating material as the ring turns.
