A Little Frustrated

I have occasionally mentioned problems with my Tamron lenses but from time to time I go try them again because I like the image quality compared to all my other choices.  So I am in another one of those cycles.  This time it is the 18-270 again.  Took a couple of shots of our hummers this morning with that lens and was again quite happy with the IQ.

For me, these are pretty good.  However, about 1 time out of every 5 or so presses on the shutter button, I get the no lens attached error message.  It seems to be random, sometimes a couple of errors in a row, sometimes all is well for3 to 10 shots.  This makes the lens not really usable but I continue to like the results when it works.  My firmware versions on the V1 are:

A  1.30

B  1.30

L  1.00

S  -.--

If anyone has any suggestions to help overcome this, I would greatly appreciate a hint.
