@ Stu,

Thanks for checking in. Yeah the shop said I wore it out, Guess I loved it to death. LOL. I bought the Canon 24-105 L along with a seven (7) year extended warrantee that was only $99.99 at 42nd Street in New York. I'll hang onto the old lens and at some point I'll send it in for an overhaul.

At Robert Davis re Canon 17 - 85. Mine has had no problems. Never heard of that. High dust would be my guess. In Iraq, all lenses were biting it after only a few weeks there. Desert Storm, no pun intended.

Would be nice to this active.

Hello Everyone... I am glad you are all here and enjoying this site.  At one time the Canon group was more than 1000 users larger than any other group on this site.  Various job changes has caused me to be less active here and I am hoping to change that.  We need to get the word out about this site and this group.  Lets grow this group and show what Canon users can do..

I find it interesting that my lens, 17 - 85 Canon, has bit the dust. The auto features built inside have failed and now a rebuild is in order to the tune of $240.00 which includes a replacement motor as well. My question is, "Has anyone else experienced this situation? If so what was your solution?"

Thanks Mike.

Comment by Karl Rose on June 16, 2014 at 6:55am

Thanks Mike. That shot below was shot in jpeg. NOW here is the RAW format pic that I edited. It is more accurate as to how I saw the truck. It was a cloudy day & the truck had a darker shade of purple (THAT is what caught my eye) than the one below...

Comment by Karl Rose on June 14, 2014 at 12:01pm

Hi Mike I attached a photo to this message. I shot this with my lens zoomed to approx 300 mm. I was some distance from the truck. I used the editor I have (I still have the RAW image unedited to work on). Anyway this was hand held. For em anyway, I don't think it's too soft. All I did on this was crop & adjust contrast SLIGHTLY..

Comment by Karl Rose on June 9, 2014 at 5:55am

Yes I agree. Also the reason I upgraded is that my digital point & shoot has only the BIG lcd viewfinder to shoot with. It is nearly impossible to shoot outside especially if it is bright outside. I prefer to look through the lens to see what I am shooting.  

Comment by Karl Rose on June 8, 2014 at 11:08am

Hi Mike. I just shot a couple of classic trucks in a parking lot. From what I can tell in my playback on the camera, it seems to work well at the 300 zoom hand held. I could not see ANY camera shake. I'll know more after I start uploading pics. Now I have my settings where each image is captured in both jpeg & RAW. This is going to be very nice for me. I really want to learn about RAW but at the same time I can at least shoot jpeg while learning a new option for me.
