How do I know if my camera lens is broken?
If you have the ability to see images produced by a lens or camera body you can look for some things such as dark spots, which may indicate dust or dirt on the lens, or banding which may indicate some deeper malfunction. For a lens, the most common problems show up as poor focus, or uneven focus across an image.
Can a cracked camera lens be fixed?
The short answer is yes, a camera lens can often be repaired but it depends on the camera and the nature of the problem. For example, a faulty lens that won’t extend properly might just need to be re-lubricated or have the lens barrel loosened.
What do you do when your camera lens stops working?
Usually a stuck lens is caused by dirt getting into the gap between the lens barrel sections. The simplest thing to try is a freshly recharged battery, which might just have the power to overcome the resistance. Plugging in an AV cable sometimes blanks the screen, leaving just a bit more battery power for the lens.

Which F stop is sharpest?
The sharpest aperture of your lens, known as the sweet spot, is located two to three f/stops from the widest aperture. Therefore, the sharpest aperture on my 16-35mm f/4 is between f/8 and f/11. A faster lens, such as the 14-24mm f/2.8, has a sweet spot between f/5.6 and f/8.
How do you test the sharpness of a camera lens?

- Place your camera and lens setup on a sturdy tripod.
- Place an object (like a vase, flower, toy, etc.)
- Make sure there is enough light to get a decent shutter speed.
- Make sure that your subject is at least 10 feet (3m) away from the background.
How do I calibrate my camera lens?
To calibrate your lenses, set your camera up on a tripod, or flat surface like a table, and set the focus pyramid on a level surface about 6 feet away. I usually set it up at a distance that I typically shoot from, that way I know it’s accurate at the distance I shoot at the most.
Can I reset a camera lens?
Gently try to help the jammed lens move by applying gentle pressure, pulling or pushing on the lens housing. A manual reset could clear the lens error message, so the lens operates properly again. Another trick to clear a lens error message is to press the power button at the same time you press the shutter button.
