Lens error When I turn the camera on it says "Lens error, restart camera," and turns itself off. When I turn it back on, the same problem occurs. The lens covers aren't completely closed, and the entire lens seems to be sticking out a little bit, like it didn't retract all the way. Please help! Thanks.

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops.

I have a canon EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens that has a zoom lock switch. When in the unlocked position and I try to zoom the lens it sticks at around the 200mm mark and cannot seem to move it below that positon, I need to wiggle the barrel before the zoom seems to "let go" and the lens goes to other positions.
