    help, having trouble focusing!

    I have a Canon eos digital rebel with efs 18-55mm lens. Ive never had a problem with it, but for some reason when i try to fine focus it, i never get a clear shot in the eye piece. The pics come out fine when i focus it as best i can, but this is bothering me to no end. Anyone know whats wrong with it? im still a photography n00b.

    thanks.

    your eye piece should have an adjustment wheel on it...this is so people with glasses can look through the eyepiece without glasses. if not adjusted right, everything would look fuzzy.

    give this a try:

    see if you can bring it to a photo shop and try it with another lens. it's possible your lens may have a front/back focusing problem.

    since the pictures turn out fine...I thought its probably just the diopter adjustment on the eyepiece itself.
