  1. Please make sure the “Lens aberration correction” function is turned off prior to use of the camera (This can be done from camera menu). However, you may turn off the function only on Program modes. i.e. Program AE, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority, Manual exposure mode.
  2. Under the “Live View” Mode, an error will occur without the above settings. Turning the “Lens aberration correction” function “OFF”, there will be no error message.   *Please try to remove and insert battery when the error occurs.
