I think my XT is getting old. Its not realizing that there are lenses attached to the camera. Your thoughts?

It sounds like you have a bad connection between the lens and the body. It says F0.0 because the camera thinks that there is no lens attached to the camera. It could be that the lens itself is loose (bad mount) or it has a dirty/damaged pin (electrical connection). First, I'd try to recreate the problem on another lens. If it only happens on the new one, you can rule out the camera as the problem. What kind of lens is it?

Have you tried wiggling the lens to see if it is loose? You might also try cleaning the pins on the lens. Is it still under warranty?

Yep...I'd say it's just a communication problem from lens to camera.
Try cleaning the contacts of both the lens and the camera and you should be good to go.

+1 on the lens communication problem. You can demonstrate this by putting a lens on your body and not fully locking it on
