    							EF200mm f/2L IS USM
    Dedicated to EOS cameras, the EF200mm f/2L
    IS USM is a high-performance telephoto lens
    equipped with an Image Stabilizer.
    • IS stands for Image Stabilizer.
    • USM stands for Ultrasonic Motor.
    1. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent
    effect of a shutter speed five stops faster*.
    The lens also has a second image stabilizer
    mode that is optimized for following shots of
    moving subjects.
    2. With fluorite and UD lens elements, outstanding image delineation is obtained.
    3. Ultrasonic motor (USM) for quick and quiet autofocusing.
    4. Manual focusing is available after the subject comes into focus in autofocus mode (ONE
    SHOT AF).
    5. The AF Stop button for stopping the AF operation at anytime. 6. Focus preset enables you to focus instantly at
    a preset distance.
    7. A truly round aperture hole results in a nicer background blur.
    8. The lens is compatible with Extender EF1.4X ll and EF2X ll.
    9. Tight seal structure ensures excellent dust- proof and drip-proof performance.
    10.Designed for lighter weight with major parts
    made of magnesium alloy.
    * Based on [1/focal length] second. Generally, it requires
    a shutter speed [1/focal length] second or faster to
    prevent camera shake.

    aSafety Precautions
    aSafety 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.
    • Do not stand on the lens case. Falling off the case
    could result in injury.
    • Do not stack lens cases. A falling lens case could
    cause an 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
    war med gradually. Do the same when taking the lens from a
    wa rm  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.

    •After detaching the lens, place the lens with the
    rear end up to prevent the lens surface and
    electrical 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.

    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 
    Kindex of the dust cap as shown
    in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it,
    reverse the order.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.
    Attaching the strap
    See your camera’s instructions for details on
    mounting and detaching the lens.
    1. Mounting and Detaching the Lens
    The lens mount has a rubber ring for enhanced
    w ater- and dust-resistance. The rubber ring may
    cause slight abrasions around the cameras lens
    mount, but this will not cause any problems. If the
    rub ber ring becomes worn, it is replaceable by a
    Canon Service Center at cost.
    After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus
    manually by pressing the shutter button halfway
    and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual
    Y ou can set the focusing distance range to 
    1.9 m/6.2 ft. to infinity or 3.5 m/11.5 ft. to infinity.
    By setting the suitable focusing distance range,
    the actual autofocusing time can be shorter.
    3.Switching the Focusing
    Distance Range2. Setting the Focus Mode
    To   shoot in autofocus (AF) mode, set the focus
    mode switch to AF.
    To   use only manual focusing (MF), set the focus
    mode switch to MF, and focus by turning the
    f ocusing ring. The focusing ring always works,
    regardless of the focus mode.
    4.Infinity Compensation Mark
    Infinity compensation markDistance index
    To  compensate for shifting of the infinity focus
    point that results from changes in temperature.
    The infinity position at normal temperature is the
    point at which the vertical line of the L mark is
    aligned with the distance indicator on the
    distance scale.
    F or accurate manual focusing on subjects at
    infinity distance, look through the viewfinder while
    rotating the focusing ring.
    5. Depth-of-Field Scale
    The depth of field is the distance in front of and
    behind the plane of focus on the subject that
    appears sharp. The depth of field is indicated by
    the area between the depth-of-field scale lines
    below the distance scale.
    The number on the scale is the F value.
    The depth-of-field scale is an approximate
    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.
    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.
    • With the EOS A2/A2E/5 and 10S/10 set to the
    Sports mode, AF will not resume even after you
    let go of the AF stop button. Press the shutter
    release button halfway to resume AF.
    •The AF stop function also works in AI Servo AF
    • By setting the cameras Custom Function, you
    can change the AF stop buttons function. For
    details, see the cameras instruction manual.6. AF Stop Button
    The dedicated Lens Hood ET-120B helps to
    prevent stray light from entering the lens and
    protects the front of the lens from rain, snow or
    To   attach the hood, loosen the hood locking knob
    by  turning it counterclockwise. Fit the hood onto
    the lens hood mount, and tighten the locking
    knob to fix it in place. Use the same procedure,
    in reverse, to remove the hood.
    7. Hood
    By presetting any focusing distance, you can
    instantly focus at that point even while you are
    shooting a different subject. This function
    operates in both the AF and MF modes.
    How to Focus at the Preset Distance
    While turning the playback ring to the left or
    ight, press the shutter button completely.
    • The lens will focus at the preset distance.
    • If the focus preset switch was set to  , the beeper
    will sound twice.
    How to Set
    Set the focus preset switch to  or  .
    Press the shutter button halfway to focus the
    distance you want to preset.
    Press the focus preset button.
    •The focused distance will be preset.
    • If the focus preset switch was set to  , the
    beeper will sound once.
    8. Focus Preset
    •When turning the playback ring, keep your finger
    aw ay  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
    e xposure may not be correct.
    • When not using the focus preset, set the switch
    to OFF.
    In the following cases, the focusing distance scale
    will move slightly. It will not affect the image.
    •When you press the focus preset button.
    • When you turn the playback ring.
    9. Image Stabilizer Settings
    You can use the image stabilizer in AF or MF mode.
    Select the stabilizer mode.
    • MODE 1: Corrects vibrations
    in all directions. It is mainly
    effective for shooting still
    • MODE 2: It compensates for
    ver tical camera shake during
    f ollowing shots in a horizontal
    direction, and compensates for
    horizontal camera shake
    during following shots in a
    ver tical direction.
    When you press the shutter
    button halfway, the Image
    Stabilizer will start
