Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
The zoom of my EF-S17-85 IS USM lens is stuck in the 17 mm position. I can't turn the lens to change the focal length. It feels like if a lock as in my tele-lens is on, BUT this lens does not have a lock. Any advice is appreciated.
Like to shoot again in Pittsburgh
Hello Pittsburgh! I lived there for 3 years! Dreadful city. :-)
Now, your lens must have a problem with the guide rails/pins. If you dropped it or bumped it, you might have broken/damaged those guide rails. Another reason might be sand/grit in the zoom mechanism.
You may try stripping the lens slowly and see if you can identify the problem. Most lenses are easy to disassemble, you start from the rear mount area, take off screws, and parts one by one, and be organized (i.e., take photos for every step and don't mix the screws).
