I just received a 10-22mm lens to use on my Ti2. it won't autofocus

New 10-22 lens won"t autofocus. I tried my three other lenses in my bag and they all worked fine. I tried cleaning the contacts and made sure the lens was all the way on. Any suggestions? Oh, and I fully charged the battery so that's not it.

And you checked the AF/MF switch, right?  Smiley Wink

 

As it happens, I didn't, at an important shoot earlier this year, which is why I dare to bring it up. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, just to cover all bases.

I've done that before. Very puzzling until you figure it out.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

" I tried cleaning the contacts ..."

 

That rarely works.  Especially if you change the lens a few times.  They tend to clean themselves.  Can you return it?  If, yes, do so.
