    Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.EF24mm f/2.8 IS USM and EF28mm f/2.8 IS USM are compact, wide-angle 
    single focus lenses that provide high image quality.
    ● “IS” stands for Image Stabilizer.● “USM” stands for Ultrasonic Motor.
     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.
    ● 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.
    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.  
    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 
    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.

    Supplementary notes on using the lens and taking pictures.
    1. Mounting and Detaching the LensSee your camera’s instructions for details on mounting and detaching the 
    ●  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, and turn 
    clockwise ● ❶. To remove it, reverse the order.
    2. Setting the Focus ModeTo shoot in autofocus (AF) mode, set the focus mode switch to AF ❷.
    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 
    After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus manually by pressing 
    the shutter button halfway and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual 
    3. Infinity Compensation MarkTo compensate for shifting of the infinity focus point that results from changes in 
    The infinity position at normal temperature is the point at which the vertical line of 
    the distance scale L mark is aligned with the distance index 
    For accurate manual focusing of subjects at infinity, look through the 
    viewfinder or look at the magnified image* on the LCD screen while 
    rotating the focusing ring.

    4. Image StabilizerYou can use the Image Stabilizer in AF or MF mode.This function provides optimal image stabilization depending on shooting conditions  
    (such as shooting still subjects and following shots).
    1.  Set the STABILIZER switch to ON 
    ❺.● If you are not going to use the image stabilizer function, set the switch to OFF.
    2.  When you press the shutter button halfway, the Image Stabilizer will start 
    ● Make sure the image in the viewfinder is stable, then press the shutter button 
    the rest of the way down to take the picture.
    ● The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a blurred shot caused by a 
    subject that moved.
    ● The Image Stabilizer may not be fully effective if you shoot from a 
    violently shaking vehicle or other transportation.
    ● The Image Stabilizer consumes more power than normal shooting, so 
    fewer shots can be taken if you use the function.
    ● When shooting a still subject, it compensates for camera shake in all 
    ● It compensates for vertical camera shake during following shots in a 
    horizontal direction, and compensates for horizontal camera shake 
    during following shots in a vertical direction.
    ● When you use a tripod, the Image Stabilizer should be turned off to save 
    battery power.
    ● The stabilizer is equally effective for handheld photography and 
    photography with a monopod. The Image Stabilizer effect may be 
    reduced, however, depending on the shooting environment.
    ● The Image Stabilizer also operates when the lens is used with extension 
    tube EF12 II or EF25 II.
    ● If you set the camera’s Custom Function to change the assigned button 
    to operate the AF, the Image Stabilizer will operate when you press the 
    newly assigned AF button.
    5. Hood (Sold Separately)The EW-65B hood can keep unwanted light out of the lens, and also protects the

    on the front of the lens, then turn the hood in the direction of the arrow until the 
    lens’s red dot is aligned with the hood’s stop position mark 
    To remove the hood, hold down the button on the side and turn the hood in the 
    direction of the arrow until the position mark on the hood aligns with the red dot 
    The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens for storage.

    turn it. To prevent deformation, do not grasp the rim of the hood to turn it.
    6. Filters (Sold Separately)You can attach filters to the filter mounting thread on the front of \
    the lens.
