Question about Tamron Cameras

1 Answer

Tamron 200-500mm lens on Canon 40D ... when I put the lens on the camera I received an error message stating that ''communication between the camera and lens is faulty, clean the contacts.'' All my other lenses seem to be working and I never had an issue with either the lens or the camera before. I also have a Tamron macro lens which seems to be working just fine. Camera was purchased in Sept 08 and the lens in Jan 09.

Try gently cleaning the electronic contacts on the lens's mount with an eraser. This will remove any mild oxidation on the contacts. If this doesn't resolve the problem, then contact Tamron and ask if there are any issues using this particular lens with a Canon 40D.

User Manual


I checked the Tamron website menu of manuals and one is not listed. This is a pass-thru device, so other than placing it between your lens and camera body, there should be no additional settings. Your camera focus and exposure is thru the lens so the camera should adjust seemlessly. Please tell us what the problem is, what lenses and body you are using.

Error 01 in canon eos 5d


Err 01: Lens to body communication error
1.The camera to lens communication is somehow being interfered with could be a problem within the lens itself, possibly the camera body, or something as simple as a smudged fingerprint on the lens mount contacts,
2. Check the lens and the contacts
3. Also check below link if you need a canon eos 5d service manual

I have a tamron 70-300mm i had a canon 1000d and the lens worked pefectly fine with it but nw i hav purchased canon 550d and when i conect my tamron lens with it , it shows an error 01 please assist me


This is the kind of error which you always risk these days in buying lenses which are not from your camera manufacturer. Error 01 simply means that the camera cannot communicate with the lens. Canon's protocols are not open standards and third party manufacturers have to reverse engineer to produce something which works. As they're working in the dark, they cannot always arrive at a solution which makes all models suit all Canon bodies.

You have two possible solutions:-

Visually inspect the contacts on the lens and the camera body and if they're anything other than clean and bright then use a clean pencil eraser on them. Be very, very, careful not to let any of the rubber crumbs into the lens or the camera body.

If that fails, visit the Tamron website to see whether the lens can be returned to be updated for other bodies. if it can't then sell it and buy a later Tamron model or better still a Canon one. They may cost more, but the results are better and their resale value is much higher.

Lens not communicating with camera


contact problem or lens diaphram blades problem. First try to clean the contact with the pencil eraser. If the problem isn't solved. send it to canon it should cost you about 100.00 to repar.

When I put the canon ex40 II in autozoom, it does not show focal length or distance on canon 40D, what am i missing? canon 40D has the latest 1.1.1 firmware


The lens you are using might not support the autozoom. Some Sigma, Tamron and other 3th party lenses are known for these problems. Best solution is to buy genuine Canon lenses, the best partners for your Canon body. (No I'm not related to Canon, I've just seen a lot of these problems with other lenses)

HI. Every I attempt to take a picture with my cam, I get a "Error 01" message. Please advise. Thank you


Err 01: LENS COMMUNICATION DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions: When electronic communication with the lens cannot be established, after the EOS D300D is powered ON or when the shutter button is pressed halfway. When the lens diaphragm cannot be controlled during shutter release.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Clean the electronic contacts on the lens with a clean, soft, dry cloth and check the mount interface switch on the body's lens mount for dirt or other damage. If this does not solve the problem, try another Canon EF lens or have the EOS EOS D300D examined by a qualified service technician. This error is similar to Error 84 on the D30.


rate me on this one...

thanks!
