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 glass surfaces of the lens or filter. To remove smudges and fingerprints, apply a small amount of lens cleaner to a soft, clean cotton cloth or lens-cleaning tissue and clean from the center 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.
  • Store the lens and filter in cool, dry locations 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.
  • Note that depending on the positions of the camera and tripod, the hand holding the camera grip may contact the tripod or tripod collar foot when the camera is rotated.

  • Improvements may result in unannounced changes to specifi cations 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.

Note: This lens uses linear motors to ensure fast and accurate autofocus while maintaining the highest image quality. When the camera is turned off, the lens is disconnected from the camera body or the playback feature is turned on, there may be an audible sound and slight physical vibration due to the linear motor’s magnets being disengaged. This is perfectly normal and will not negatively affect image quality or lens performance.
