Has anyone suffered with any problems using their 50d with 24-105mm L-series lens?
I was at LHR
the other Sunday, I got my 2 year old 50d out my bag & put on my brand new 24-105mm L-series lens. Within about 30 minutes, my camera threw up an error code 20. It was on continuous high speed shooting mode & the shutter appeared to lock up for about 10 seconds before returning to it's normal position. The only way to reset the camera was to turn it off & on again. This progressively got worse until it was happening on the second shot of a burst every time without fail! I put my 50d away & used the same lens on my new 60d body, lens & camera worked perfectly for about 7 hours, (although still getting used to new body & lens so images weren't too good! I put that down to experience, or lack of it in this case).
I got home & took my 50d to a local canon authorised repair centre who replaced the complete shutter assembly at a cost of £108.00. I got the camera back & to my disbelief it still had the same fault with error 20 on the screen.
I took it back again, today I got a phone call asking if I could take my 24-105mm lens in as they think it may be an issue between the camera & lens. Surely it wouldn't have worked on my 60d though?
I sent my 50d to them without the memory card in so I don't think it's related to that either?
Has anyone had an experience similar to this or heard anything like this?
I'm keen to resolve this as I'm off on a trip to CPH
on the 15th.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
