    I've been having some issues with my lens today... first it wasn't focusing properly i it was taking forever to try to focus and when it finally takes a pic its really blurry. I tried the lens on my dads camera no go and my other lens works fine on my body...

    Now the lens won't turn all the way unless you were to force it... It's stuck between 35-55...

    Ideas??

    Sounds like it got bumped and the plastic gears are mangled. You are SOL unfortunately - get a quote to fix it and decide what to do then.

    If it is not under warranty odds are it will be cheaper to buy a new 18-55 or another lens to replace it than to have it fixed.

    It is possible. If it isn't caused from blatant negligence than perhaps it will be! Here is to hoping they have it covered.
