Question about Tamron Cameras
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.
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.

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.
