I received Error 01 when attempting to photograph a fly.
I sent my Canon MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo lens back to Canon Factory Service for repair.
Canon reported the aperture is not functioning properly and requires the replacement of the power diaphragm. The repair estimate is $31.37 parts and $179.00 labor.
I received delivery after being repaired by Canon Factory Service.
