I have a Canon Rebel and this past weekend i was taking some pictures of my cousin and her new baby and it was acting right at first but then it got to where it didn't want to focus. It kept acting like it was having problems. I tried a differently lens and it still was acting crazy. Has anyone ever experienced this? I am going to be near the best buy that I bought it from this week and I am trying to decide weather or not to take it and send it off for repairs. Could it be something I am doing wrong or the camera needing to be looked at? I hate to have to send it off b/c it will probably take a few weeks to get it looked and and fixed. I don't want to be without my camera that long!!!
I had a similar problem with my 40D the lens just stopped working, I went to the shop and they put another lens on... same issue. I sent it away to be looked at they found absolutely nothing wrong with it.
a few weeks after getting it back I had it happen again in the middle of a shoot and I had a brainwave to turn it off and then take the battery out, I blew off any dust that may have been there and then put it back in the camera.... all fixed. I had had it happen once again since then but no other issues.
I suggest maybe checking the battery before you do anything.

I'm a Nikon shooter, but I've noticed my 50mm lens has a terrible time w/ autofocus in low light situations. :\
My "babies" are Abigail (6/06) and Caleb (1/08 )
I've recently had some problems with my rebel xt. It gets to the point where it won't focus and won't take a picture at all. Turn it off and on, no luck...switch lenses, no luck. Once I take out the battery and put it back in its good to go for a while. Its SUPER annoying especially since its never a good time for it to happen. I'm contemplating ordering a new battery to see if that is the issue since its good to go after I take it out and put it back in. Good luck!
