    I know that it's a generic warning, but anything you suggest I try before bringing it into the shop?

    It's an error letting you know that the contacts for the lens are dirty or there is a problem with the lens communication. Just hit them up with a q-tip or lens cloth on both the lens and body and it should hook it right up.

    The error didn't go away after a new lense, new battery, or cleaning so they are giving me a new one for free! I'm glad I bought locally and not online.
