Because a circuit board has gone bad in the lens and now can't get the information it needs to the body.

I bet they are not AF lenses. There are adapters that add the AF contacts to "fool" the camera but increase the zoom. You can get used lenses from many "on line" camera stores with warranties for a few months.

SOURCE: I'm using Tokina 12-24mm f4 on my Canon EOS 20D.

Most likely something bad has happened. It out of warranty, usually its 5 years. This is a pro job, getting to anything inside a lens is a very special job. There are a number of places to send it out. Check http://www.acecam.com/srindex.html and write to one or two of the places for estimates. It could be $150 or more plus shipping and taxes. A new one is about $400+, you could check around the many on-line camera stores for a used one. Could be a simple electronic part or the iris blades are bad.

SOURCE: my 60d finding ERR 01

I have the exact same problem, it's the aperture flex cable which have a design flaw. At 12mm the flex is stretched at maximum and over the years loses its flexibility and breaks. Mine works fine from 24 to 15mm. Below 15 the camera always reports err01. All flex cables in the tokina are welded -IMHO you need to take it to a professional.

Error 99 with a Canon 300D (original rebel) and Tamron XR Di II 18 to 200 mm lens. Occurs when lens is zoomed out. Does not happen with other lenses (Canon 18-55 kit, Canon 75-300). Cleaning contacts on...


Welcome to Fixya
Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....

Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Last i heard of the same occurance on a 24-105, it turned out to be a problem with the main board on the lens. Sounds like it needs CSC. Better send it in. Is the lens still under warranty?

Your flex cable to the Iris is broken. Have a look at my gallery at http://www.pbase.com/barry_2718/efs1785mm I have the same symptoms. At 28 or 35mm it make work ok. try Av mode and f8 aperture to see if you get an err01 because the aperture does not move either.

Error 99


Assuming that other lenses function normally on the camera, the "Err 99" can be caused by a failure of the aperture component in the lens. Error 99 is a generic error, so unfortunately it does not indicate exactly what is wrong. There are other factors that can cause the failure, but there is a good chance that the aperture is not functioning correctly. You can try cleaning the electrical contacts on the lens, if this does not work you may need to get the lens serviced. Check with Canon, or check the web for other repair service providers.
