Product Care

  • When using a lens hood, do not pick up or hold the camera using only the hood.
  • Keep the lens signal contacts clean.
  • Use a blower to remove dust and lint from the lens surfaces. To remove smudges and fingerprints, apply a small amount of ethanol or lens cleaner to a soft, clean cotton cloth or lens-cleaning tissue and clean from the cen- ter outwards using a circular motion, taking care not to leave smears or touch the glass with your fingers.
  • Never use organic solvents such as paint thinner or benzene to clean the lens.
  • Attach the front and rear caps when the lens is not in use.
  • If the lens will not be used for an extended period, store it in a cool, dry location to prevent mold and rust. Do not store in direct sunlight or with naphtha or camphor moth balls.
  • Keep the lens dry. Rusting can cause irreparable damage. Wipe off rain and water droplets.
  • Leaving the lens in extremely hot locations could cause damage or warping.

Attaching the Lens

See the camera manual for information on attaching and removing lenses. Note that this product is not compatible with X-mount film cameras.

Removing the Caps

Remove the caps as shown.


Attaching the Hood

When attached, lens hoods reduce glare and protect the front lens element.



Rotate the zoom ring left to zoom out, reducing magnification and increasing the area visible in the frame. Rotate the ring right to zoom in, increasing magnification so that the subject occupies more of the frame.


  • Using the zoom ring while the lens is wet makes it easier for water to find its way inside the lens. Wipe any water from the lens before using the zoom ring.

Optical Image Stabilization (OIS)

To use optical image stabilization, slide the O.I.S. switch to ON.



For auto aperture control, slide the aperture mode switch to A.


To adjust the aperture manually, slide the switch and rotate the aperture ring. Rotate the ring left for wider apertures (lower f-numbers), and right for smaller apertures (higher f-numbers).




  • Improvements may result in unannounced changes to specifications and appearance.
  • Owing to how this lens is constructed, the “Distance indicator” displayed by the camera may in some cases differ from the actual focus distance. Use the “Distance indicator” as a guide only.
