comment My EFS 17-85 lens doesn't focus or click a picture
No, the display doesnt show any Err message. The processor can select best settings, but clicking the button doesnt close the aperture and click a picture. I have taken your advice into consideration, and will be dropping it to a repair center.

Thanks for replying. Do you have an estimate of the cost it took you then?

The aperture looks permanently open.

comment Can a photo with nothing in focus be considered to have bokeh?
That is a really good read. Thank you :)

Thats the problem with my camera, its an S95. I cannot set focus. It focuses on the entire scene, or as the above picture shows, focuses away from the entire scene. That was like my 10th or so picture :D

Thanks, @jrista. I was trying to capture this scene, and since its an S95, I do not have easy control the focus. I did read about good quality bokeh, and it seems circles that fade outward without hard borders are the best. I will try to achieve that. Atm, by popular demand, I will just consider this an out-of-focus image!

comment Colored powder in a lens: will it need a cleaning?
I did wipe it off with a soft cloth or my finger, whichever convenient at that point of time. There was not a bunch of it, just a few particles here and there, but noticeable.

comment Why does using flash sometimes create these white spots in the photo?
Can i open it up, and check? Or will it be TOO complicated an unclean in an home environment?

comment Why does using flash sometimes create these white spots in the photo?
That was my thought too, but the outside of the lens is clean. And since the lens is not removable, I am going a to hazard a statement, and say that there wont be dust inside it :) If I give the camera to repair, what exactly do i tell the guy to look for? 2. I will take a few pics in different modes, in combinations flash and w/o flash.

@mattdm how do I do a test? Does taking a picture while I am moving count?
