Hi Guys, I plan to get the 40D at some point, but would like to walk around with 1 lens if possible and the Tamron 18-200 looks purdy good. However during last week, when I was shooting with 30D and a Tamron and Sigma lens, after a day of shooting with Sigma, the camera didn't recognize the lens anymore and I got it a Err message of death (99).
Is this a rather common thing? Are we forced to use Canon lenses only, to avoid the derided Err 99?
Nikon makes a great 18-200, but Canon does not. And there is not a single lens in Canon that goes from around 18 to over 85mm.
Is there an after market company that's superior to Tamron and Sigma that I've missed.?
Lastly, am I the only one who thinks Tamron makes a superior product to Sigma? The sigma lens that I have initially had to be sent back for repair under warranty and of course then I had the problem of 30D not recognizing it.
Thanks for the comment guys...
