    This lens is equipped with an Image Stabilizer. 
    This function corrects camera shake, allowing 
    users to capture sharp images. Also, the Image 
    Stabilizer automatically provides optimal image 
    stabilization depending on shooting conditions 
    (such as shooting still subjects and following 
    shots). Please set the Image Stabilizer ON 
    or OFF using the camera settings. See your 
    camera’s instructions for details.
    Image Stabilizer [On]
    Image Stabilizer [Off]
    The image stabilizer in this lens is effective for 
    hand-held shots under the following conditions.
    ● Hand-held close-ups (macro)
    ● In semi-darkened areas such as indoors or outdoors 
    at night.
    ● In locations where flash photography is prohibited, 
    such as art museums and theater stages.
    ● In situations where your footing is uncertain.
    ● In situations where fast shutter settings cannot be 
    ● When panning subjects in motion.

    ● The shorter the subject distance from the 
    camera, the lesser the Image Stabilizer effect 
    will be.
    ● The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a 
    blurred shot caused by a subject that moved.
    ● Set the Image Stabilizer to OFF when you are 
    taking pictures using the Bulb setting (long 
    exposures). If the Image Stabilizer is set to ON, 
    the image stabilizer function may introduce 
    ● 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, resulting in fewer shots 
    and a shorter movie shooting time.●
    ● When shooting a still subject, it compensates for 
    camera shake in all directions.
    ● 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.
    ● Even with a monopod, the Image Stabilizer will 
    be as effective as during hand-held shooting. 
    However, depending on the shooting conditions, 
    there are cases in which the Image Stabilizer 
    effect may be less effective. 
    Hold the camera firmlyHold the camera firmly as shown in the 
    illustration on the right when taking hand-held 
    close-ups (macro), and take the shots carefully 
    to minimize camera shake and prevent focus 
    Taking Photographs with the Servo AFIt is recommended that the camera is set at 
    Servo AF when taking close-up (macro) shots. 
    See the camera’s instruction manual for further 
    It is necessary to be careful of the following during 
    close-up (macro) shooting. 
    • There is a tendency for camera shake to affect 
    close-up (macro) shots more than normal shots, 
    and the effects of the image stabilizing function 
    are reduced.
    •  Depth of field becomes extremely shallow when 
    taking close-up (macros) shots, and the focus 
    may blur if the camera is moved forward and 
    Taking Hand-held Close-ups (Macro)5
    Place both elbows on a steady surface such as a table.
    Use your knee to support 
    an arm holding the camera.Lean against a steady 
    object like a wall. 
    Setting the Exposure
    When taking photographs using TTL metering, 
    no exposure compensation is necessary to 
    meter the light coming through the lens.  
    With TTL metering, AE (autoexposure) is 
    possible at all focusing distances. Just set the 
    desired picture-taking mode, then check the 
    shutter speed and aperture before taking the 
    Magnification and Effective f-number
    The aperture displayed by the camera assumes 
    that the focus is set to infinity. The actual 
    aperture (effective f-number) becomes darker 
    (effective f-number increases) at closer focusing 
    distances (magnification increases). This does 
    not cause exposure problems for normal picture-
    taking. However, for closeup photography, you 
    cannot ignore the change in the effective 
    ● Conditions prevalent with the subject are very 
    important when deciding on the correct level 
    of exposure for close-up (macro) shots. It is 
    therefore recommended that exposure levels are 
    amended as much as possible during shooting, 
    or that the image of the subject is checked on 
    the camera’s LCD monitor.
    ● Using either the aperture-priority AE (Av) mode 
    or manual exposure (M) mode is recommended 
    for close-up (macro) photography, as these 
    make it easier to adjust the depth of field and 
    Exposure When Taking Close-up (Macro) Shots6 
    When you use a handheld exposure meter to set the exposure, you must take into account the 
    exposure factor shown in the following table.

    Macro Lite A
    Macro Lite B
    The Macro Lites on the front of the lens shine 
    light on the subject during close-up (macro) 
    photography to facilitate shooting. There are two 
    light-emitting Macro Lites located on both sides 
    of the lens, and it is possible to illuminate both 
    simultaneously or either of them independently.
    1.  Set the mode selection ring to either the 
    normal mode or the super macro mode.
    2.  Press the Macro Lite ON button to illuminate 
    the Macro Lites.
    Macro Lites7
    ● The Macro Lites can only be illuminated when 
    the power to the camera is switched on.
    ● Remove the hood when using the Macro Lites.
    The use of a single Macro Lite will add shadow to 
    the subject and add a sense of three-dimensionality 
    to photographs. 
    Macro Lites
    ■ Both Macro Lites IlluminatedBriefly pressing the Macro Lite ON button will 
    alternate between ON and OFF for both lights, 
    and between Bright and Dim.
    [Both lights illuminated: Bright]
    [Both lights illuminated: Dim]
    Macro Lites A and B Illuminated 
    ● Hold down the Macro Lite ON button with the 
    light switch off to illuminate one of the lights.
    ● Briefly pressing the Macro Lite ON button when 
    one light is illuminated will alternate the ON 
    status to the other light.
    [Macro Lite A illuminated: Bright]
    [Macro Lite A illuminated: Dim]
    [Macro Lite B illuminated: Bright]
    [Macro Lite B illuminated: Dim]
    ■ Switching Between Both Macro Lites 
    and a Single Macro Lite
    ● Hold down the Macro Lite ON button with the 
    light illuminated to alternate between both 
    lights and a single light. 
    Macro Lites
    ● The Macro Lites cast shadows from the camera 
    and lens onto the subject during close-up 
    (macro) photography to facilitate shooting and 
    improve the end result. They are not designed to 
    shine sufficient light on subjects when shooting 
    in dark locations.
    ● The Macro Lites are extinguished when the 
    camera’s power-saving function (Auto Power Off) 
    turns off the power.
    ● T
    he illumination status will not be saved once the Macro 
    Lites have been extinguished when the power to the 
    camera has been switched off and the lens retracted.
    ● More battery power is consumed when the 
    Macro Lites are in use than when they are 
    not in use, which will reduce the number of 
    photographs that can be taken and the amount 
    of time that videos can be filmed.
    ● T
    he Macro Lites will be concealed when the hood 
    is attached, so don’t forget to switch them off.
    ● After pressing the shutter button halfway, don’t 
    change the Macro Lite status when shooting. 
    Since pressing the shutter button halfway locks the 
    exposure*, it may not be possible to shoot in standard 
    exposure if the Macro Lite status has changed.
    *  Differs according to the camera’s photometry and 
    AF settings. For details, please check your camera’s 
    instruction manual.
    The ES-22 lens hood plays the following roles:
    ● In addition to blocking out damaging light, it also protects 
    the lens from rain, snow, dust and other elements.
    ● It prevents the white ring on the front of the 
    lens from being reflected back into images.
    ● It acts as an adapter when filters are being used.
    Screw the hood firmly and correctly onto the 
    front of the lens.
    ● Attaching the hood at an angle may damage the 
    outside of the lens.
    ● I
    f the hood is not attached properly, vignetting 
    (darkening of the perimeter of the picture) may occur.
    ● Remove the hood when using the Macro Lites.
    It is possible to attach the lens cap to the front of 
    the hood when it is attached to the lens. 
    You can attach filters (which are 43 mm in 
    diameter) to the filter mounting thread on the 
    front of the hood.
    1. Attach the hood.
    2. Attach the filter to the front of the hood.
    ● Filters cannot be used unless the hood is 
    ● Only one filter may be attached.
