    							EF-S18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
    Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
    The Canon EF-S18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens is
    a high-performance high-magnification zoom
    lens equipped with an Image Stabilizer, and
    has been developed for digital SLRs
    compatible with EF-S lenses*.
    ¡“IS” stands for Image Stabilizer.Features
    1. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalenteffect of a shutter speed four stops faster*.
    This function provides optimal image
    stabilization depending on shooting conditions
    (such as shooting still subjects and following
    2. Aspherical and UD lens elements result in outstanding image delineation.
    3. The zoom ring can be fixed to keep the lens at the shortest point.
    4. A truly round aperture hole results in a nicer background blur.
    *Based on [1/(focal length x 1.6)] second. Generally,
    it requires a shutter speed [1/focal length] second or
    faster to prevent camera shake (in 35mm format.
    With an EF-S lens, it would be [1/(focal length x
    1.6)] second).

    Warning to prevent lens or camera
    malfunction or damage.
    Supplementary notes on using the lens
    and taking pictures.

    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
    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.

    1Mounting and Detaching the Lens
    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  ¢index of the dust cap as shown
    in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove
    it, reverse the order.
    2Setting the Focus Mode
    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.
    ¡Do not touch the rotating parts of the lens while autofocus is active.
    ¡Do not adjust focus manually when the focus mode switch is set to AF.
    3Hood (Sold Separately)
    To zoom, turn the lens’ zoom ring.
    Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
    Changing the zoom ring after focusing can affect
    the focus.
    The EW-78D hood can keep unwanted light out
    of the lens, and also protects the lens from rain,
    snow, and dust.
    To attach the hood, align the hood’s attachment
    position mark with the red dot on the front of the
    lens, then turn the hood as shown by the arrow
    until the lens red dot is aligned with the hoods
    stop position mark.
    The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens
    for storage.
    ¡Part of the picture may be blocked if the hood isnot 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.
    5Fixing 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
    (18mm).2Slide the zoom ring
    lock lever in the
    direction indicated by
    the arrow.
    ¡To release the zoomring, slide the zoom ring
    lock lever in the direction
    opposite to the arrow.
    The zoom ring can only be locked at maximum wide angle.
    6Image Stabilizer
    You can use the image stabilizer in AF or MF
    This function provides optimal image stabilization
    depending on shooting conditions (such as
    shooting still subjects and following shots).
    1Set the STABILIZER switch to  .¡If you are not going to use the imagestabilizer function, set the switch to  .
    2When you press the shutter button
    halfway, the Image Stabilizer will
    start operating.
    ¡Make sure the image in the viewfinder isstable, then press the shutter button the
    rest of the way down to take the picture.
    ¡The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a
    blurred shot caused by a subject that moved.
    ¡ 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, so fewer shots can be
    taken if you use the function.
    ¡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.
    ¡The stabilizer is equally effective for hand-held photography and photography with a monopod.
    ¡The image stabilizer function also operates when the lens is used with an Extension Tube
    EF12 ll or EF25 ll.
    ¡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 button.
    Image Stabilizer
    The image stabilizer in this lens is effective for hand-held shots under\
     the following
    ¡In semi-darkened areas such as indoors oroutdoors 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 be used. ¡When panning subjects in motion.
    7Filters (Sold Separately)
    You can attach filters to the filter mounting
    thread on the front of the lens.
    ¡Only one filter may be attached.
    ¡If you need a polarizing filter, use the CanonCircular Polarizing Filter (72mm).
    ¡To adjust the polarizing filter, first remove the lens hood.
    8Extension Tubes (Sold Separately)
    You can attach Extension Tube EF12 II or EF25
    II for magnified shots. The shooting distance and
    magnification are shown below.
