Exclamation ERR 99 on 17 -85 EFS IS Lens with my 350D

Guys, I need some input from you all. Recently when I change to 17 - 85 EFS IS Lens on my 350D, ERR 99 prompt out. The weird thing is, when I switch back to 10 - 22 EFS lens, everything is normal. The camera can operate normally. But when I change the lens to 17 - 85, ERR 99 keep on prompt out in my LCD screen and I can't take any shot.

Any idea what's wrong? I doubt something wrong with my 17 - 85 EFS lens..

You can try your 17-85 on another camera to see if the same error shows. Before that try cleaning the contact points on the lens.

Probably you could test out other 17-85mm and see if you still face the problem?

err 99 is lens-contact-points error, you can try use some solvent to clean the contact point on the lens or body.

ERR 99 - Lens contact point error.

Possible because of :
01. Lens contact or body contact dirty or problem
02. NEW generation body attached with OLD generation Lens ( vice versa ). Eg. 400D attached with 28-80 F2.8-4L, always pop up ERR 99, where I give up to buy this lens

17-85 EFS IS is a new lens and this may not compatible with your 350D, just try to upgrade the firmware. Please visit http://www.dpreview.com for detailed information for firmware update ( do this at your own risk ! )

Hope this info may help !

If you have cleaned the lens contact and it still shows error then there's something wrong with the lens. You have to to send to Canon.

Absolutely, there's problem with the lens, I had cleaned it with pecpads and eclipse solution. The diaphragm already died. When I connect it back to my 350D, it the view through the lens very dark..
