Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I feel that your question deserves an answer, though you have evidently found a solution elsewhere.

Some lenses cannot be zoomed beyond a certain factor, with certain cameras. It's a matter of sheer limits on compatibility.

Also, if you are using a converter or adapter ring, this limit on compatibility may be surprisingly large.

Thank you for asking your question here at JustAnswer.com. Please feel welcome to return at any time, and as needed, to ask another question, in any one of our numerous categories.
