Error 99

I've developed an error 99 problem on my 400D.

Now as I understand it, this is a "could be owt" error which I was a little worried about as for what Canon would charge me just to have a look, I may as well dispose of the camera.

I have however, managed to narrow the problem down to my Tamron 70-300 macro lens as other lenses dont create the error.

Ive cleaned all the contacts both on the camera and the lens.

Anyone have any ideas what the problem with the lens may be?

This lens has been fine for sometime.

Thanks.

Re: Error 99

Generally It is problem related to lens only..Mostly seen in kit lens where the connector ribbon in side the lens has broken or got separated after the rigorous use

Re: Error 99

A friend had the same error on a relatively new 40D. She took it back to the shop who changed the body for a new one and that fixed the problem. In that case it was not the lens. There is a lot of info on the web about this. Google "error 99" and you will see what I mean. I hope that this helps.
