Canon EOS 400D kit lens problem...

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.

1. There are hundreds and hundreds of programs that can restore lost files from a formatted drive... just google it

2. You cannot use a usb cable to transfer files (or at least not on my computer) with this camera, you have to take the card out of the camera and directly plug it into your computer

Hope I helped

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.

Sounds like your camera and your lens aren't communicating. Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the camera and the lens mount?

Contact Canon - some makes of lens which are not Canon are not electronically compatible for various reasons, and can actually damage the camera. So, get using the phone and check if it is compatible before doing anything else - but personally, I would not use the lens until I find out

My Canon 40D can't handle bright yellow and reds. It blurs the detail and overly saturates the subject (flower close-ups) - so that the bright red poppy is overly saturated and lacks detail even though...

I made the mistake of putting ahotshoe protector from my old camera on the new EOS 400D. It stopped the flash from popping up. I took it off and things now work.

If you're on a budget, the 50mm f/1.8 II is a great deal, $100ish, f/1.8 is great for low light.

If you have a bit more cash, the 50mm f/1.4 has better build quality (the 1.8 is all plastic) and much better autofocusing (its USM so its fast and quiet, as well as more reliable) and its also slightly sharper.

If you want a zoom, from canon theres the 17-55 f/2.8, which has image stabilizer and USM focusing.
Also, the 24-70mm f/2.8L, which has USM, and since its an L lens, fantastic optical quality. However, it will run you over a thousand most likely.

From sigma, theres several zoom options, the 28-70mm F2.8 EX DG, 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG MACRO, and 24-60mm F2.8 EX DG. All under $800 or so.
