Question about Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 DL Macro Super Lens for Canon-EOS
Posted by Anonymous on
Cleaning the contacts on lens and camera is about all you can do.
If its faulty and still under warranty then you'll need to send it back to where you got it from, any attempt to fix it yourself will void the warranty.

To NOT get that error you need to use in AV mode. It's the only way that old Sigmas work with the new Canons. It's an aperture bug that old Sigma lens have and some the only way to fix it is to rechip it. The problem is that Sigma no longer rechips the lens.

It is asking you to clean the electronic points on the lens that come into contact with the camera body when the two are fitted together, in order to power the lens functions.
If other lens work ok, try giving the lens electronic contact point on the mounting plate a light rub with a dry cotton-bud, may be a fingerprint .

cleaning the contacts did nothing for me. what ended up fixing it was turning the camera to AV mode and setting to the highest f value. (f22) and then taking a picture. after that i was able to change it to what ever and resume as normal. hoping i dont see that error again.
