    	 Warning	 to	prevent	 lens	or	camera	 malfunction	
    or	 damage.
    	 Supplementary	 notes	on	using	 the	lens	 and	
    taking	 pictures. 
    Precautions	to	ensure	 that	the	camera	 is	used	
    safely.	 Read	these	 precautions	 thoroughly.	Make	
    sure	 all	details	 are	observed	 in	order	 to	prevent	
    risks	 and	injury	 to	the	 user	 and	other	 people.
    	Warning	 Details	 pertaining	 to	risks	 that	may	
    result	 in	death	 or	serious	 injury.
    ● Do not look at the sun or a bright light source 
    through the lens or single-lens reflex 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.
    	Caution	 Details	 pertaining	 to	risks	 that	may	
    result	 in	injury.
    ● Do not leave the camera in locations subject to 
    high or low temperatures.  This	may	result	 in	the	
    camera	 becoming	 excessively	 hot	or	cold,	 which	 may	
    cause	 burns	or	other	 injuries	 when	touched.	
    ● Do not insert your fingers inside the camera.	
    Failure	 to	observe	 this	may	 result	 in	injury.
    Caution	 Details	 pertaining	 to	risks	 that	may	
    result	 in	damage	 to	property.
    ● Do	 not	 leave	 the	lens	 in	excessive	 heat	such	 as	in	a	
    car	 in	direct	 sunlight.	 High	temperatures	 can	cause	 the	
    lens	 to	malfunction.
    Safety Precautions 
    General Precautions
    Handling Precautions
    ● Make	 sure	that	the	power	 zoom	control	 contacts	 (see	
    p.6)	 are	kept	 free	of	soiling,	 scratches,	 fingerprints,	 etc.	
    Failure	 to	observe	 this	may	 result	 in	faulty	 contacts	 or	
    corrosion,	 which	may	lead	 to	the	 power	 zoom	adapter	
    (see	 p.13)	 malfunctioning.	 Clean	the	contact	 points	
    with	 a	soft	 cloth	 in	the	 event	 of	soiling	 or	fingerprints,	
    etc.,	 adhering.
    ● 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	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.
    ● Please	 also	read	 any	lens	 related	 handling	 precautions	
    listed	 in	your	 camera’s	 instruction	 manual. 
    Shooting Precautions
    This	lens	uses	 nano-USM	 as	the	 drive	 unit	for	the	 focus	 lens	(the	lens	 that	aligns	 the	focus).	
    The	 motor	 also	controls	 the	focus	 lens	during	 zooming.
    1. When the camera is OFF
    The	 motor	 does	not	operate	 while	the	camera	 is	OFF	 or	when	 the	camera	 is	OFF	 due	to	the	 use	 of	the	 auto	
    power	 off	function.	 Therefore,	 users	must	be	aware	 of	the	 following	 points.
    ● Manual	 focus	adjustments	 are	not	possible.
    ● During	 zooming,	 delayed	focus	will	occur.
    2. When the lens is in sleep modeIf	not	 operated	 for	a	certain	 period	of	time,	 this	lens	 will	enter	 sleep	 mode	 in	order	 to	save	 power.	 Sleep	mode	
    differs	 from	when	 the	camera	 is	OFF	 due	to	the	 use	 of	the	 auto	 power	 off	function.
    In	 this	 state,	 the	motor	 will	not	 operate	 even	if	the	 camera	 is	ON.	 Therefore,	 users	must	be	aware	 of	the	 following	
    points. ●
    ● Manual	 focus	adjustments	 are	not	possible.
    ● During	 zooming,	 delayed	focus	will	occur.
    ● To	 exit	 sleep	 mode,	 press	the	shutter	 button	halfway.
    General Precautions 
    This	device	 complies	 with	Part	 15	of	the	 FCC	 Rules.	
    Operation	 is	subject	 to	the	 following	 two	conditions:	 (1)	This	
    device	 may	not	cause	 harmful	 interference,	 and	(2)	this	
    device	 must	accept	 any	interference	 received,	including	
    interference	 that	may	 cause	 undesired	 operation.
    Do	 not	 make	 any	changes	 or	modifications	 to	the	 equipment	
    unless	 otherwise	 specified	in	the	 instructions.	 If	such	
    changes	 or	modifications	 should	be	made,	 you	could	 be	
    required	 to	stop	 operation	 of	the	 equipment.
    This	 equipment	 has	been	 tested	 and	found	 to	comply	 with	
    the	 limits	 for	a	class	 B	digital	 device,	 pursuant	 to	part	 15	
    of	 the	 FCC	 Rules.	 These	limits	are	designed 	to	 provide	
    reasonable	 protection	against	harmful	 interference	 in	a	
    residential	 installation.	 This	equipment	 generates,	 uses	and	
    can	 radiate	 radio	frequency	 energy	and,	if	not	 installed	 and	
    used	 in	accordance	 with	the	instructions,	 may	cause	 harmful	
    interference	 to	radio	 communications.
    However,	 there	is	no	 guarantee	 that	interference	 will	not	
    occur	 in	a	particular	 installation.	 If	this	 equipment	 does	
    cause	 harmful	 interference	 to	radio	 or	television	 reception,	
    which	 can	be	determined	 by	turning	 the	equipment	 off	and	
    on,	 the	user	 is	encouraged	 to	try	 to	correct	 the	interference	
    by	 one	 or	more	 of	the	 following	 measures:
    •	 Reorient	 or	relocate	 the	receiving	 antenna.
    •		 Increase	 the	separation	 between	the	equipment	 and	
    •		 Connect	 the	equipment	 into	an	outlet	 on	a	circuit	 different	
    from	 that	to	which	 the	receiver	 is	connected.
    •		 Consult	 the	dealer	 or	an	 experienced	 radio/TV	technician

    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	
    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.
    ● Attach	 the	lens	 cap	and	 dust	 cap	when	
    disconnecting	 the	lens.	 When	 attaching	 the	
    dust	 cap,	align	 the	lens	 mount	 index	with	the		
    index	 of	the	 dust	 cap	and	 rotate	 in	a	clockwise	
    direction	 as	shown	 in	the	 illustration.	 Follow	the	
    reverse	 procedure	 to	detach	 it.
    To	zoom,	 turn	the	lens’ 	zoom	 ring.
    ● Be	 sure	 to	finish	 zooming	 before	focusing.	
    Zooming	 after	focusing	 can	affect	 the	focus.	
    ● Blurring	 may	temporarily	 occur	if	the	 zoom	 ring	is	
    quickly	 rotated.
    ● Zooming	 when	the	camera	 is	OFF	 will	result	 in	
    delayed	 focus.
    ● Zooming	 during	still	image	 exposure	 will	result	 in	
    delayed	 focus.	This	causes	 any	streaks	 of	light	
    that	 are	captured	 during	exposure	 to	be	 blurred.

    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	
    focusing	 ring.
    After	autofocusing	 in	ONE	 SHOT 	AF	 mode,	 focus	
    manually	 by	pressing 	the	 shutter	 button	halfway	
    and	 turning 	the	 focusing	 ring.	(Full-time	 manual	
    ● Quickly	 rotating	 the	focusing	 ring	may	 result	 in	
    delayed	 focus.
