    A buddy of mine rented the 24-70L and let me try it out on my XT, it really had trouble focusing took one shot then gave me an "error 99" message. Is this a firmware issue?

    I got that error this weekend when I put my shitty sigma "macro" lens on for a ring shot... I just powered down, waited a second, powered back on and it was good to go :dunno:

    Happened on my friends brand new 30d with a 50mm 1.8. Its something with the lens because when I used the lens on my 40d the same thing eventually happened. It would take the pic, get the error but the image was still recorded.

    Tons of issues on potn. Most the time people suggest to clean the contacts

    Happened to me a few weeks back. Nothing new was on the camera, but I had accidently held it with my finger over the flash pop-up trigger and my palm covering the flash. It make the motor noise while it tried to pop-up a few times before I realized what I did and I got the same error.

    Power cycle cleared it.

    I don't know if this is relevant but make sure the aperture pins are "locked" at its smallest setting on the lens.
