My 24-105 f4 IS died today

Brilliant Lens, probably 5 years old.

It get err 01 but only if the zoom is extended beyond 50 mm.
The fault moves with the Lens.

I have cleaned the contacts on the camera’s (5D MK II & 40D) & lens.
Battery is fully charged.
Don’t think this is the aperture mechanism as it works OK
Possible problem with the flexi PCB’s or inter connectors within the lens.

It’s not going to be cheap to repair, possibly time to buy another one… I would expect L glas to las longer the 5 years.

Any advice welcome or recommended repair centres in the UK.
Dave
