JONG questions, Canon Rebel XT w 18-55 kit lens
Is this where all the smart guys hang out?
I got my sweet new camera and I hope you can help me get up to speed. This is my first DSLR.
So the lens has what looks like water spots on it after I took it out yesterday while it was snowing. How do I get those off without a lens cloth?
I tried pushing the button halfway for autofocus, but I guess it just didn't happen. What did I do wrong? Here's an image:

I'm guessing this is a used camera and lens since the Rebel XTi has been available for a few months. If you bought this at a store, go back and have them check it. If you're doing something wrong, they should be able to show you what's up.
Use a lens cloth or lens tissue (Kimwipes) with a little dap of lens cleaning fluid (tissue and cleaning fluid are cheap) and gently wipe. You may also breath on the lens and then wipe. Honestly, in your situation, those little spots won't affect picture quality for you. One way to help keep rain/snow off is to get a lens hood- the rubber ones are usually cheap.
