nope. No soon fix. I had hoped that it was just a cold-soaking problem but leaving it alone inside all week the error just repeated when I tried the lens again. It is cooked for good. Probably be easier to just get another new lens. Trouble was last week I drove to the camera store and they had closed the store closest to me. The main store in downtown Indy is still open. Now I only have to decide to try it now when the roads are good or after the holidays when the road might me a mess. Decisions, decisions.

 

P.S. Red skies at night, photographers delight.

Have you tried cleaning the contacts? The gold looking thingies on your lens connect to the gold looking thingies in your camera body. Make sure none of them are stuck in the down position. On your lens, take a lens cloth and swipe the gold thingies from an inward to outward motion. Start closest to your body and swipe away. Clean them really good. Some people say to use an eraser or wd 40 to clean them. I've only tried the lens cloth and it worked for me. I hope it works for you :hug: 

 

P.S. Yasssssssss!! ^_^

Thanks for the hints. Still no joy. So today I made a trip downtown and got me a new 24-70mm lens. What a difference. The one that died was a Mark I issue. It was nicknanmed "The Brick" for a good reason. It was heavy. So heavy that if that lens was on the camera and I was going to move the tripod. I would take that lens off of the camera and put a lighter lens on. No Joke. This new lens is a Mark II issue and much lighter. Also, it is more in-line color wise with my other Mark II lens. The old 24-70mm images just looked different. Of course, it was designed back in the film days and film has a completely different color response than a sensor. But I am a happy camper now even if a bit lighter in the wallet. Guess I gave myself and early Ho-Ho-Ho gift.

Got to try out my new 24-70mm lens this evening with a sunset. The Sun rounded the corner of the cloud deck right at sunset. How convenient!

 

Started off with the yellows. Taken with the 24-70mm at 50mm...

Was not a comfortable day outside with the camera today. After the cold front passage and with the winds gusting in the 30's it just as not a nice day to be outside. But the clouds pulled me out there for they were quite photogenic.

 

  Started after lunch as the cumulus deck was being shredded by the winds and dry air. Taken with the 24-70mm at 24mm...

Here you can contrast and compare between lens. This is taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm. And the clouds were really swooping...

Now onto the sunset stuff. Just as I got out to behind the firehouse. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...

The contrail in the upper right added a nice bit of something else to this image. Taken with the 24-70mm at 70mm...

A very photogenic evening. Some cirrus rode over the top of the ridge and fell on top of me right around sunset. Placing and timing were perfect.

 

Starting off with the yellow as I got to behind the firehouse right after sunset. Taken with the 24-70mm at 63mm...

Kind of similar this evening again. But today the ridge was flatter. And the cirrus was in the similar altitude of the contrails, 30 to 40,000 feet, as there as a lot more contrail action this evening.

 

Started off around local sunset. taken with the 24-70mm at 38mm...

Max color dynamics with the inclusion of the reds. Taken with the 24-70mm at 38mm...

One of these are soon to be the last of the year. But not just yet. Tonight, the stratus broke up right around sunset.

 

When I got out to the back of the firehouse, looking south. Taken with the 24-70mm at 67mm...

With the stratus being so low the best color was the yellow color. Taken with the 24-70mm at 42mm...

What little cloud action there was post sunset. Taken with the 100mm...
