Hello,

I’ve been having some issues with one of my lenses for a bit now. Very often, not every time, an error message comes out on my camera:

“Err 01 Communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts.”

when I use my EF-S 17-85mm. It doesn’t appear when I use my EF-S 60mm lens. What’s more interesting, the lens works perfectly well in Live View Mode!

Any suggestions? Anyone had a similiar issue?

I did call Canon, but they only offered fixing it without any information on what it could be and they quoted £55+
