I’m thinking of picking up one of these bad boys in the used market. Then I started reading about the error 1 messages people have gotten with this lens. Is it a wide spread problem? Or should I take a chance...?


Mine lasted for about ten years and 20,000 images before the cable broke. It cost a little over $300 (US) to fix about three years ago. It has been working fine since then; however, your concern about how long Canon would be willing to repair the lens is a legitimate one. After all, the original 24-105 was introduced in 2005, but I don't remember when it was officially discontinued. The II version was introduced in 2016.
