    I just picked up a 16-35L f/2.8:boink:. Can't wait to give it a shot! :coold: (around $1300)

    but 10-22 is another good wide, it's f/3.8 (around $650)

    17-40L is another goodie if you don't mind the f/4.0 (around $650)

    or you could go the prime route.

    20mm f/2.8 is pretty good, I have it, well it's not mine... I kinda adopted it from a friend :) (around $300)

    I'm sure there's a few more W/A primes.

    The Sigma 10-20 is highly rated. I have it and love, thought I use it on my Nikon (d70).

    Tokina 12-24. Cheaper than the rest of them and a stellar lens.

    same error would happen with the L lens; actually it's more likely to happen IS lenses.

    lens/camera communication issue which locks up the camera. usually it's due to the IS but it can occur on non-IS lens.

    10-22 and 17-40 aren't in the same league- if you want wide angle get the 10-22.

    ERR99 is actually a generic error code that comes up when the issue doesn't fit into any other error category.

    My aunt had the error 99 with her 20d so she gave the camera to me and I did alittle research and called canon repair center and they said that it is usually due to using aftermarket lenses (ex. Sigma, Tonika...). And it made sense also because she was using an older sigma lens from her Canon 35mm camera and when I put one of my canon lenses on it the error never came up.

    Nope, Derrict is right. You're more likely to get an ERR99 with a 70-200IS than you are with a Tokina lens.

    An OLD Sigma lens on he other hand. The problem was that when Sigma reverse engineered Canon's circuitry, at the time bodies were sending a higher voltage than spec so Sigma's lenses worked with that voltage, however on newer bodies, Canon lowered the voltage which still met their specs but put all the older Sigma lenses out of spec which meant you couldn't close the aperture down before shooting which made the camera throw an ERR99. Sigma cleaned, calibrated, and replaced the boads on all lenses with the problem.

    Tokina lenses have not had this problem.

    You shouldn't state "facts" when you have no idea what you're talking about.

    The person you spoke to is an idiot then. ERR99 is a generic catch-all error code that pops up when the camera doesn't know what the issue is. It could be a lens communication error, or soemthing more serious (like shutter failure).
