Re: ERR 01 on EOS 500D - the end has come

I had the issue, and I think it was about AUD$200 (less than USD$200 at the exchange rate at the time) to have Canon repair it. If you're ready to move on, then it might be a good excuse to replace the lens (maybe sell it on e-bay noting it is in need of repair), but if you are still happy with it then it's probably more cost effective to have it repaired.

I wish I would have used the breakage as an excuse to upgrade to the 17-55/2.8... as it was, I paid to have it repaired then about a year later I upgraded. The lens now very rarely sees the light of day (it's sitting on my 350D in a closet, while I use my 60D with the 17-55/2.8).
