Try a different lens on the camera. Try the lens on a different camera. Switch on and off and remove batteries.

I had a scare like that once with my 70-200mm. Switched on and off, removed and reattached. And tried the lens on a different camera. Then suddenly everything worked fine. Never had a problem since. The technical term is "magic".
