Hi all
I have suddenly started getting error 99s when using my fairly new canon 17-85. It seems to be related by the aperture getting stuck at f4 when zoomed out below about 24mm.
The camera works fine unless I stop down from the maximum when the camera will lock up when I fire the shutter. On testing the dof preview the aperture will sort of step through several stages at repeated presses of the button before opening up again. Greater zoom lengths are unaffected.

The lens is out of warranty so hopefully I am not looking at a costly repair or an expensive paperweight. Has anyone had this problem with this particular lens?

ps all my other lenses work fine
