Hi, my 2 year old Canon 24-105 f4.0 L started giving trouble yesterday. Abnormal sound and shutter movement followed by Error 01 message displayed on the display. "Error 01 , communication between camera and lens faulty. Clean lens contact" was what displayed. I cleaned the contacts but again the problem persisted at certain f stops and zoom. I tried with other lenses and camera was working fine. Does anybody has had the same problem? If yes then what will the possible solution will be.


I ran into such problem about a year ago and it turned out my 7D had to be fixed, good thing under warranty!  Since then my 24-105mm f/4L and 7D have been good buddies.
