Question about Canon EF-S 17-85MM F/4-5.6 IS USM Lens
Err 01 CANON EF-S 17-85MM
The flat printed cables inside the lens unfortunately develop small
cracks over the years and this causes the lens to fail. The repair is
NOT easy, you have to tear down the lens all the way to it's base
components and replace the flex cable on the aperture diaphragm. The
cable and the diaphragm are available online, but again it's not a
simple repair and most people should not attempt it themselves.
