I recently upgraded to 6d mark ii. I have 24-105 lens and a 70-200. I went on a short trip and cranked off a couple hundred photos without issue. After a while I started getting lens error communication code with my 24. I would take a picture, the error code would appear and then I could no longer pictures. But, if I turned the camera off and then back on I could take another photo. But only one photo and then the error code would reappear. I didn't have any issues with the 70-200. I packed it away for a few weeks and then brought them all out again. The problem escalated and the auto focus would not work. I went manual and got the error code again. This time with both lenses. What I don't understand is why the issue took 500 or so shutter activations to appear. AND...what do you think the issue is and how to correct. Thanks in advance

Only time I have seen this error is when I did not have the lens fully engaged with the lock. After making sure I had the lens cranked on all the way I never saw the error again. Don't know if this is what happened to you, or not.

I tried reseating the lenses and this did not help

Try cleaning the lens and body contacts with one drop of isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip.

Ok, I am feeling a bit stupid. I figured the focus problem out. Total user error. But I am still having the Error 01 issue. Contacts have been cleaned. The error only happens on the 24-105 35mm and above

I've had that happen too many times. I remember going on vacation... my wife wanted me to take some fashion photos of her. I couldn't get my camera to focus..... I was in the middle of typing an PM to one of my friends here when I remembered... I had just set it for back button focusing for the first time.

I felt very stupid. ;).... I think we've all been there.

now... I wish you could figure out what's going on with your 24-105. Have you called the Canon tech team? They are excellent. I've called them a few times and they have been extremely helpful.

Back button. That was the issue. My old camera I used that exclusively. I just switched to this and you'd think my brain died

Yes. Cleaned both lenses contacts and camera contacts.

My guess would be MKI as it is pretty old.

There's your problem. The lens is known for having this error due to a crappy ribbon cable.

Either repair or trash.

Actually you might be able to turn it into a MF lens, not quite sure if that will eliminate the error.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

So you think the change from my old camera to my new camera was just coincidental?

I'll test it out on another EOS and see. Love the input

Probably.

Though it could be that the newer camera is more sensitive to that type problem. Maybe.

This is a notorious problem. Search 24-105 ribbon err 1
