    wow, kinda mad here. i purchased a new 70-300 quantaray (i know...) about 2 months ago. i was shooting a school event when i changed lenses and the autofocus just clicked. i got a little confused and switched lenses, my 18-90 focused fine, turns out when it hits infinity it clicks over and over, almost like its slipping inside the lens housing. when i manual focus it, its rough around the infinity mark but gets smooth as i turn it. theres definitly something workng here, any ideas?

    thanks in advance :mrgreen:

    I assume it is still under warrenty - so your best bet is just to send it in for repairs.

    I had a similar problem with my 70-300 (Canon) around a year ago when a screw became loose inside (eeks), but they fixed it no problem.

    if all else fails, take it into your local ritz and throw it at the head of the closes employee.
