    fluorite and UD lens elements giving 
    superior definition.
     SWC (Subwavele
    ngth Structure Coating) 
    reduces flare and ghosting.
     Using a 
    fluorine coating on the foremost and

     Safety Precautions
     Safety Precautions
    ●●Do not look at the sun or a bright light source 
    through the lens or camera.  Doing so could result in 
    loss of vision. Looking at the sun directly through the 
    lens is especially hazardous. 
    ●● Do not point the lens or camera at the sun or 
    photograph it.  This is because the lens concentrates 
    the sun’s rays even when the sun is outside the image 
    area or when shooting with backlight, which could 
    cause malfunction or fire.
    ●● Whether it is attached to the camera or not, do 
    not leave the lens under the sun without the 
    lens cap attached.  This is to prevent the lens from 
    concentrating the sun’s rays, which could cause a fire.
    ●● When the lens is mounted on a camera, be sure to 
    also hold the camera by the lens, including when 
    mounting on a tripod. Only holding by the camera 
    could result in scratches on the camera body or the 
    lens itself. The lens may also detach from its mount 
    and fall, causing injury.
    ●● Do not use a strap attached to the camera. The mount 
    may break, resulting in the lens falling off and causing 
    injury or in scratches on the camera. Be sure to use 
    the camera with a dedicated strap attached correctly to 
    the strap mount on the lens.
    ●● Do not stand on top of the lens case. You may fall and 
    injure yourself.
    ●● Do not pile lens cases on top of one another as they 
    may fall and cause injury.

    Handling Cautions
    ●● If the lens is taken from a cold environment into a 
    warm one, condensation may develop on the lens 
    surface and internal parts. To prevent condensation 
    in this case, first put the lens into an airtight plastic bag 
    before taking it from a cold to warm environment. Then 
    take out the lens after it has warmed gradually. Do the 
    same when taking the lens from a warm environment 
    into a cold one.
    ●● Do not leave the lens in excessive heat such as in a 
    car in direct sunlight.  High temperatures can cause 
    the lens to malfunction.
    This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.

    1. Mounting and Detaching the Lens
    See your camera’s instructions for details on 
    mounting and detaching the lens.The lens mount has a rubber ring for enhanced 
    dust- and water-resistance. The rubber ring may 
    cause slight abrasions around the camera’s lens 
    mount, but this will not cause any problems. If the 
    rubber ring becomes worn, it is replaceable by a 
    Canon Service Center at cost.
    Attaching the strap
    Thread the end of the strap through the strap 
    mount on the lens and then back through the 
    clasp on the strap. Pull the strap tight and check 
    that there is no slack in the clasp.
     ●●After detaching the lens, place the lens with 
    the rear end up to prevent the lens surface and 
    contacts from getting scratched.
    ●● If the contacts get soiled, scratched, or have 
    fingerprints on them, corrosion or faulty 
    connections can result. The camera and lens 
    may not operate properly. 
    ●● If the contacts get soiled or have fingerprints on 
    them, clean them with a soft cloth.
    ●● If you remove the lens, cover it with the dust 
    cap. To attach it properly, align the lens mount 
    index and the   index of the dust cap as shown 
    in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it, 
    reverse the order.
    2. Setting the Focus Mode3.  Switching the Focusing 
    Distance Range
    After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus 
    manually by pressing the shutter button halfway 
    and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual 
    To shoot in autofocus (AF) mode, set the focus 
    mode switch to AF.
    To shoot in manual focus (MF) mode, set the 
    focus mode switch to MF, and focus by turning 
    the focusing ring. The focusing ring always 
    works, regardless of the focus mode.
    To shoot in power focus (PF) mode, set the 
    focus mode switch to PF when the focus preset 
    switch (p. 8) is at OFF.
    Operating the playback ring enables focus 
    change at a set speed. This is a useful feature 
    for changing focus when shooting movies.You can set the focusing distance range with a 
    switch. By setting a suitable focusing distance 
    range, the actual autofocusing time will be 
    1. FULL (2 m/6.56 ft. - ∞)
    2. 2 m/6.56 ft. - 6 m/19.69 ft.
    3. 6 m/19.69 ft. - ∞
    4. AF Stop Button
    The AF stop function also works in AI Servo AF 
    Angle positioning of the AF stop button is 
    adjustable by a Canon Service Center at cost.
    ●●With the EOS 630/600, RT, A2/A2E/5, or 10S/10 
    set to the AI Servo AF mode and continuous 
    shooting, AF will not resume even after you 
    let go of the AF stop button. Press the shutter 
    release button halfway to resume AF.

    button using the camera’s Custom Function. For 
    details, please refer to the camera’s instructions.
    During autofocus operation, you can press the 
    AF stop button to temporarily pause autofocus.
    If the shutter button is still pressed halfway when 
    the AF stop button is released, autofocusing will 
    continue as before.
    5. Focus Preset
    By presetting any focusing distance, you can instantly focus at that point even while you are 
    shooting a different subject. This function operates in any of the AF, PF, and MF modes.

    Focus Preset
    ●●After the focus distance has been preset, turning 
    the playback ring to a different zoom position or 
    changing the internal extender setting will result 
    in an out of focus picture. Therefore, use the 
    focus preset function after zooming is completed 
    and the internal extender has been set.
    ●● The focus preset function will not operate for a 
    few seconds after setting the internal extender 
    (the amount of time varies depending on the 
    camera used).

    the shutter button halfway before setting or using 
    the focus preset.
    ●● When turning the playback ring, keep your finger 
    away from the shutter button. In One-Shot AF 
    mode, the exposure will be locked when you 
    press the shutter button halfway and focus is 
    achieved. So if you press the shutter button 
    halfway while turning the playback ring, the 
    exposure may not be correct.
    ●● When not using the focus preset, set the switch 
    to OFF.
    ●● The focus preset function will not work while a 
    Live View image is displayed on the camera.*

    (PF) when using the lens with the EOS-1D X, 
    EOS 5D Mark III, or EOS REBEL T4i/650D 
    enables focus change at a slow set speed 
    during movie shooting. Also, you can make a 
    2-step change in focus shift speed depending on 
    the angle that the playback ring is rotated to.
    * Not applicable to the EOS-1D X, EOS 5D Mark III, or 
    EOS  REBEL T4i/650D
    In the following cases, the focusing distance scale
