    performance telephoto zoom lens equipped
    with an Image Stabilizer.
    ¡“IS” stands for Image Stabilizer.
    ¡“USM” stands for Ultrasonic Motor.Features
    1. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalenteffect of a shutter speed three stops faster*.
    The lens also has a second image stabilizer
    mode that is optimized for following shots of
    moving subjects.
    2. UD lens elements for excellent imaging performance.
    3. The zoom ring can be fixed to keep the lens at the shortest point.
    4. Ultrasonic motor (USM) for quick and quiet autofocusing.
    5. A truly round aperture hole results in a nicer background blur.
    *Based on [1/focal length] second. Generally, it requires
    a shutter speed [1/focal length] second or faster to
    prevent camera shake.Conventions used in this instruction

    and taking pictures.
    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.
    • 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
    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.

    2.Setting the Focus Mode
    ¡Do not touch the rotating parts of the lens whileautofocus is active.
    ¡Do not adjust focus manually when the focus mode switch is set to AF.
    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.
    See your camera’s instructions for details on
    mounting and detaching the lens.
    ¡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 
    Kindex of the dust cap as shown
    in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it,
    reverse the order.
    1.Mounting and Detaching the Lens
    4. Zooming
    To  zoom, turn the lens’ zoom ring.
    Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
    Changing the zoom ring after focusing can affect
    the focus.
    3. Hood (Sold separately)
    ¡The front end of the lens rotates, so hold it when
    attaching the hood.
    ¡Pa rt 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.
    The ET-65B 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.
    5. Fixing the Zoom Ring
    The zoom ring can be fixed to keep the lens at the shortest point. This function is convenient for
    carrying a camera on a strap because it prevents the lens from extending.
    1Turn the zoom ring to
    the widest position
    (70mm).2Slide the zoom ring
    lock lever in the
    direction indicated by
    the arrow.
    ¡To   release the zoom ring,
    slide the zoom ring lock
    lever in the direction
    opposite to the arrow.
    The zoom ring can only be locked at maximum wide angle.
    6. Image Stabilizer
    You can use the image stabilizer in AF or MF mode.
    1Set the STABILIZER
    s witch to  .
    ¡If you are not going to
    use the image stabilizer
    function, set the switch to .
    2Select the stabilizer
    ¡MODE 1: Correctsvibrations in all
    directions. It is mainly
    effective for shooting still
    ¡MODE 2: 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.
    3When you press the
    shutter button halfway,
    the Image Stabilizer
    will start operating.
    ¡Make sure the image in the viewfinder is stable,
    then press the shutter
    button the rest of the way
    down to take the picture.
    7. Tips on Using the Image Stabilizer
    The image stabilizer in this lens is effective for hand-held shots under the following conditions.
    ¡In semi-darkened areas such as indoors or
    outdoors at night.
    ¡ In locations where flash photography is
    prohibited, such as art museums and theater
    ¡ In situations where your footing is uncertain.
    ¡ In situations where fast shutter settings cannot

    ¡When you use a tripod, the ImageStabilizer should be turned off to save
    battery power.
    ¡The stabilizer is equally effective for hand- held photography and photography with a
    ¡The image stabilizer function also operates when the lens is used with an
    Extension Tube EF12 ll or EF25 ll.
    ¡Pictures may look distorted after being taken depending on the camera, but this
    doesnt affect shooting.
    ¡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
    butt on.

    •You shoot while riding on a bumpy road.
    •Y ou move the camera dramatically for a
    panning shot in Mode 1.
    •Y ou shoot using techniques other than
    f ollowing shots in Mode 2.
    ¡The Image Stabilizer consumes more power than normal shooting, so fewer
    shots can be taken if you use the
    ¡The image stabilizer operates for about two seconds even when your finger is off
    the shutter button. Do not remove the lens
    while the stabilizer is in operation. This
    will cause a malfunction.¡With the EOS-1V/HS, 3, 30/33/Elan7/7E,
