    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.
    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
    wa rm  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.

    See your camera’s instructions for instructions on
    mounting and detaching the lens.
    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.
    2. Setting the Focus Mode
    •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.
    • 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 
    K index of the dust cap as shown
    in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it,
    reverse the order.
    1. Mounting and Detaching the Lens
    After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus
    manually by pressing the shutter button halfway
    and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual
    4. Zooming
    To   zoom, turn the zoom ring.
    Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
    Changing the zoom ring after focusing can affect
    the focus.
    You can set the focusing distance range to 
    1.2 m/3.9 ft. to infinity or 3 m/9.8 ft. to infinity. By
    setting the suitable focusing distance range, the
    actual autofocusing time can be shorter.
    3.Switching the Focusing
    Distance Range
    If the current focusing distance is not within the
    f ocusing distance range you switch to, the lens
    f ocusing may first stop at the start or end of the
    f ocusing range. This is normal and not a
    malfunction. Just press the shutter button halfway
    again to resume normal autofocusing.
    5.Infinity Compensation Mark
    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.
    Infinity compensation mark
    Distance index
    The infrared index corrects the focus setting
    when using monochrome infrared film. Focus on
    the subject manually, then adjust the distance
    setting by moving the focusing ring to the
    corresponding infrared index mark.
    • The infrared index position is based on a
    wav elength of 800 nm.
    • The compensation amount differs depending on
    the focal length. Use the indicated focal length
    as a guide when setting the compensation
    • Be sure to observe the manufacturer’s
    instructions when using infrared film.
    • Use a red filter when you take the picture.
    6. Infrared Index
    Some EOS cameras cannot use infrared film. See
    the instructions for your EOS camera.
    7. Hood
    The ET-74 hood can keep unwanted light out of
    the lens, and also protects the front of the lens
    from rain, snow, and dust.
    Attach and align the hood to the hood mount on
    the front of the lens, and turn the hood as shown
    by the arrow to secure it.
    The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens
    for st orage.
    •Part of the picture may be blocked if the hood is
    not attached properly.
    • When attaching or detaching the hood, grasp
    the base of the hood to turn it. To prevent
    deformation, do not grasp the rim of the hood to
    turn it.
    You can attach filters to the filter mounting thread
    on the front of the lens.
    8. Filters (Sold Separately)
    • If you need a polarizing filter, use the Canon
    Circular Polarizing Filter (67mm).
    •T o adjust the polarizing filter, first remove the
    lens hood.
    9. Using the Tripod Mount (Sold separately)
    Adjusting the Revolving Mount
    This lens can be used with the A II (W) tripod mount ring, sold separately.
    You can loosen the orientation lock-knob on the tripod mount to allow it to rotate as needed to fit a
    particular camera model for switching between vertical and horizontal positions.
    Use the following procedures to remove and attach the tripod mount.
    Turn  the locking knob
    counterclockwise until it
    becomes loose (about 3
    turns), and pull the knob in
    the direction of the arrow to
    release the collar.
    With the collar open,
    remove the tripod mount.To   install, while pulling the
    locking knob, bring the collar
    to the original position, and
    tighten the locking knob
    The tripod collar can be attached to or detached from the lens while the lens \
    is attached to the camera.
    10. Extenders (Sold Separately)
    With Extender EF1.4X ll or EF2X ll attached, the lens specifications wil\
    l change as follows:
    Item With EF1.4X ll Extender With EF2X ll Extender
    Focal length (mm) 98 – 280 140 – 400

    Maximum magnification (×) 0.310.45
    •Autofocusing is still enabled with Extender EF1.4X II attached.
    • When an Extender is attached, the AF speed will become slower by design to retain proper
    AF control.
    •First attach the Extender to the lens, then attach the lens to the camera. Detach it from the
    camera in the reverse order. If you attach the lens to the camera first, misoperation may
    With Extender EF2X II attached to the lens, only manual focus is possible. However, with the EOS-
    1Ds Mark III, EOS-1Ds Mark ll, EOS-1Ds, EOS-1D Mark lll, EOS-1D Mark ll N, EOS-1D Mark ll,
    EOS-1D, EOS-1V/HS, EOS-3 camera, autofocusing with the center focusing point is possible.
    • Only one Extender can be attached to the lens and camera.
