    ● ❷
    ● ❸Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.EF40mm f/2.8 STM is a compact, lightweight, low-profile high quality standard 
    single focal point lens.
    ● “STM” stands for Stepping 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 
    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.
    Cautions during shooting●  This lens uses a stepping motor to drive the focusing lens (the lens that has 
    the job of focusing the shot).
      1.  Cautions when the power is off 
    Since the motor does not operate when the camera is off or has been 
    turned by the auto power-off function, take note of the following points.
    •	 The	focus	cannot	be	adjusted	in	manual	focus	mode.
      2.  Cautions when the lens is in sleep mode 
    This lens has a sleep mode separate from the camera auto power-off 
    function for saving power when the lens has not been operated for a period 
    of time. 
    Since the motor does not operate when the lens is in sleep mode, even if 
    the camera is turned on, take note of the following points.
    •	 The	focus	cannot	be	adjusted	in	manual	focus	mode.
    •	 To	recover	the	lens	from	sleep	mode,	press	the	shutter	button	halfway.
    ●  To retract the lens if extended, keep the lens attached to the camera, and 
    then autofocus at infinity or turn the focusing ring.
    ● To shoot with this lens attached on an EOS-1D Mark IV, update the EOS-
    1D Mark IV firmware to version 1.1.1 or later. Updating to this firmware will 
    optimize exposure accuracy.
    ● When using an EOS film camera, the action of the focus may slow down if 
    the battery is low on power or when the ambient temperature is low.
    ● About the AF frame selection
      High accuracy cross (+) detection can be used in the center AF frame and 
    horizontal line detection can be used in the frames other than the center AF 
    frame for the following cameras.
    EOS-1Ds Mark III, EOS-1Ds Mark II, EOS-1Ds, EOS-1D Mark IV, 
    EOS-1D Mark III, EOS-1D Mark II N, EOS-1D Mark II, EOS-1D, EOS-1V,

    ● 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

    ❹3. Hood (Sold Separately)The ES-52 hood can keep unwanted light out of the lens, and also protects the 
    lens from rain, snow, and dust.
    When attaching the hood, securely attach it to the filter mounting thread (ø52mm) 
    on the front of the lens, or to the thread (ø52mm) on the front of the filter that is 
    already fitted to the lens (excluding older Canon circular polarizing filters that do 
    not have a filter mounting thread on the front) 
    Part of the picture may be blocked if the hood is not attached properly.
    4. Filters (Sold Separately)You can attach filters to the front of the lens, or to the filter mounting thread 
    (ø52mm) on the front of the hood.
    ● Only one filter may be attached.● Use the Canon Circular Polarizing Filter PL-C B (ø52mm) as the 
    polarizing filter.
    ● You can use hoods and filter attached in any order.
    5. Extension Tubes (Sold Separately)You can attach extension tube EF12 II or EF25 II for magnified shots. For 
    shooting distance and magnification, see the extension tube specifications.
    MF mode is recommended for accurate focusing.
    ● The lens length is measured from the mount surface to the front end of the 
    lens. Add 21.5 mm to include the E-52 lens cap and dust cap, and 23.9 mm for 
    the E-52 II.
    ● The extenders cannot be used with this lens.● The close-up lenses cannot be used with this lens. (The end of the lens will 
    become heavy, causing the focus to become unstable.)
