I have a Canon zoom lens EF-5 18-55mm for my Canon EOS 450D. I am having trouble with my AF. If I set it on AF it will not focus automatically, but if I manually turn the lens for a close up it will then take the picture. Then and only then will the AF for long distance shot come into operation! After taking that shot it reverts back to not focussing. What can I do, if anything, to rectify this malfunction?

Canon 30D out of focus on EF 28-80 mm zoom 3.5-5.6 This is a cheap lens but even at f16 on 28 mm it is not very sharp. My 10-22 mm 3.5-4.5 not much better and 90-300mm 4.5-5.6 the same.
