I recently bought a mint condition Canon Auto Zoom 814 on ebay (pre-electronic). I simply cannot figure out how to focus the lens. The only time I can bring the image into focus is when im approaching full telephoto at something far away or partial telephoto at something up close. I cannot keep the lens at wideangle and focus at something more than about 1 foot away. For example, if I zoom in and focus on something across the room, the image becomes increasingly unfocused as I zoom out. In other words, I can't shoot a landscape at wideangle even with the focus ring set to infinity.
What is going on? Is my lens screwed up?
I grew up with the VHS camcorder; this is my first experience with super-8 film. I appologize if this question seems ridiculous...
Lens reads as follows:
CANON ZOOM LENS C-8
7.5-60mm 1:1.4 #218021
Thanks for any advice!
