Question about Tamron Cameras

Open Question

Err 01 Communication between Camera & Lens is Faulty

Similar problem, different brand of lens: I have a Tamron 70-300 (AF70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro) on a Rebel XS and am having the same problem. The weird part is, I used it problem free for a few weeks, and got a couple hundred shots out of it. Only recently has the ERR 01 started showing up. Now I take one pic, get the error, turn off the camera, turn it back on, and shoot again. The pics turn out fine--aperture, autofocus, any focal length... all are good.

I've cleaned the contacts, shot right when the battery was fully charged, every prescribed fix I've come across short of chookin's "buying a battery pack" one, and still no luck.

Make sure the aperture ring is set to the minimum f-stop number, ie f22,f32. It is usually colour coded orange

Nothing you can do. The Tamron is not compatable with your camera. So the focus will be slower

SOURCE: I am trying to use an older SIGMA 28 - 200 mm f3.5

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.

SOURCE: Err 01 Communication between Camera & Lens is Faulty

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.

Was I sold a 'pup'? Tamron lens box says AF55-200mmF4-5.6LD MACRO. Can't find macro setting on lens or instructions. Looking at your site, Product Details says 'No Macro'. So what's...


Excerpted from a www.photo.net review of the lens:

Though the Tamron AF 55-200mm Di II LD Macro has "Macro" in its name, it's not really a macro lens. Maximum magnification is about 1/3 life size (Tamron spec it at 1:3.5) as you can see from the following image below, which was shot at 200mm and at the closest focus distance (0.9m/37.4"). This isn't too bad, but it's more of a close focus telephoto lens than a "macro" lens (bolding for emphasis added).

So, have you cleaned the contacts as you were advised? You do this by removing the lens and cleaning the contacts on the camera body and on the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

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!

Err 99 with canon 350d


Hi,
This error may be displayed if you use a non-Canon lens and the camera or the lens does not operate properly. Remove the battery and re-install it. If the problem persists, get your camera / lens checked by a qualified technician.

Hope this works. Thanks.

I need a manual for Tamron Camera Lens 28-200/3.8-5.6


You didn't supply what kind of Tamron lens it is. I'm gonna go ahead and give it my best shot on a guess: Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di LD Aspherical (IF).
If I'm correct, you can download the manual here: http://www.tamron.com/assets/pdfs/A09.pdf
Hope this helps!
