T2i - 17-55 - Err1 - Communication between Camera and Lens is Faulty

Hi. I have a new T2i and a 17-55mm f/2.8 which is less than 30 days old and can still be returned to J&R. I hadn't noticed any problems with the lens on my T1i, which is now up for sale, but on the T2i I'm starting to get ERR1 messages saying the communication between the lens and camera is faulty and to check the contacts. It doesn't happen all the time, but in the last couple days just snapping a few test shots around the house, it's happened at least 4 or 5 times.

Also have a 55-250 which isn't causing any ERR1 errors on the T2i. Does this sound like a problem with my 17-55 or the T2i? I know the 17-55 has a rather bad repair history.

Kevin
