I Can't Zoom Very Far or Auto Focus Up Close With My Lens
I have a Canon Eos 1000D DSLR body with a Canon zoom USM EF 35-80mm 1:4-5.6 lens, this might just be me and my lack of experience (probably is) but I can't auto focus on anything up close, even using the up close settings on the camera, etc.
I was wondering if this is because I'm using a telephoto lens... And if so can I get a macro attachment to add on?
Also, I got this lens second hand for £50 but the images don't seem to be amazing quality, I have a 10mpxl small digital camera which zooms much further than this lens seems to, and takes better quality images... What am I doing wrong? X
