    Re: Canon Lens EF, 35-70mm Zoom, Error Code 01

    Thanks, Snorri. I've just seen a 28-80mm 3.5-5.6 Mk III for 55 on eBay. Have you any thoughts on this lens?

    Thanks again!

    Canon Lens EF, 35-70mm Zoom, Error Code 01

    The original 35-70 lens on my Canon 400D has gone kaput. I've located a very cheap second hand one on eBay. The problem is that the seller has helpfully indicated that the lens shows an Error Code 01...

    Re: Rip 400d?

    Thanks, nimbus. I've managed to locate a repairer in Middlesex, (http://www.cam-rep.co.uk/), who charges 85 all in for this repair. Sounds reasonable, so I might go for this rather than the upgrade!...

    Re: Rip 400d?

    Thanks for your reply Malcolm. Yes, I've taken a few thousand images since I bought the 400D. However, the number of times that I've removed/replaced the cards has been rather few. I tend to take the...

    Re: Canon 35-70 lens faulty

    Thanks, Sid and Mojo! I, too, rather liked my 35-70 so I will probably seek to buy a cheap one on eBay. Then, again, Sid's
    Sigma 17-70mm lens look good......if a tad pricey!

    Thanks to all for...

    Re: Canon 35-70 lens faulty

    Thanks, Mojo. Looks as though I'm going to have to consider the options a bit more carefully; new lens' prices of 300-500 are definitely a no-no!

    Re: Canon 35-70 lens faulty

    Thanks for the info., El Sid. I got the 500 price tag from this page. Am I comparing like with like as I see that this lens appears to be priced at 399.99 on this page, too?
