What does your lens look like? Can you take a photo?

It would seem that there are some fake canon lenses floating about in hong kong and other areas of the far east, what makes you think your lens may be a fake

The 55-250 canon lens that I looked at was an entry level canon lens and it was all plastic including the lens mount it was very light weight and did not feel that good a lens, but the photos that it took were ok for a lens of that price

Most but not all of the Canon lens range have a serial number on the lens mount

been told it the camera either has a faulty CCD or the meter is screwed in Av mode the camera speed or shutter speed is all over the place. Can any one tell if the camera is faulty or the lens or I am doing some this wrong/missing something.

the colours look dull and i am told the image looks muddy too

thank you for your help and views
