Re: 50mm 1.8 Err 001 at small aperture (f>=16)

It never happens with any other lens?

You could try cleaning the electrical contacts on the lens (the 7 brass squares and rectangles on the rear of the lens). You can run them with a pencil eraser, but make sure you don't leave any crumbs anywhere on the lens!

Since it's aperture specific, I'm thinking it might be an internal error with that lens. I'd ask for an exchange.
