Hi. My name isXXXXX a camera repair technician with over 20 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.


The lens should close up just the same as all your other Canon lenses. If it doesn't then something is wrong. I would suggest having it looked at before something inside catches and breaks. I'll be a lot less expensive. Below is a link to a directory of repair shops, one of which should be in your area and able to help you. If you need assistance locating a shop near you, please let me know and I'll locate one for you.
