My Tokina 12-24mm aperture has gone as well !!!

Brightcolours thanks for posting that...

I assumed mine was a one off problem. Its actually been a great lens and I have enjoyed using it for a couple of years. However now the lens has this aperture problem - its restricted to F4 or the next darker half stop (f/4.5?). If you try stopping down beyond this my 350D or 40D displays an error and has to be turned on and off.

Its sharp at f/4 so I suppose I could try just using it at that setting but I am pretty hacked off. I got mine second hand - precisely what you advised against ...
