- Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT
Battery reported empty earlier then it should have been
stevefreitag posted a new topic:
On three occasions with the new Canon 40mm f/2.8 STM Pancake lens attached, my Rebel XT has reported the battery empty much earlier then it should have.
On the last occurrence, I had a new, freshly charged battery and had only taken a picture or two. I removed the battery, replaced it and all was fine again.
I thought it might be the battery at first, but the issue also occurs with a new battery. So far I haven't seen this issue with any other lens, and have used the Canon 85mm f/1.8 on the Camera with out an issue quite a bit lately. I have an early copy of the 40mm lens and have not had the firmware update/fix applied to the lens yet. When I get a chance, I will send the lens in for the firmware update hoping that will correct this issue.
Anyone else have similar experiences or ideas on what the issue may be?
