For splash-proofing, the lens is constructed to resist the entry of water. If splashes of water etc. do adhere to the lens, wipe after use with a soft dry cloth.
- To improve the dust-proofing and splash-proofing of this lens, a lens mount rubber is used in the mounting portion.

For information on changing the lens mount rubber, contact your nearest Service Center.

- When there is dirt (water, oil, fingerprints, etc.) on the surface of the lens, the picture may be affected. Lightly wipe the surface of the lens with a soft, dry cloth before and after taking pictures.
- To prevent dust and other particles from accumulating on or entering the lens, attach the lens rear cap when the lens is not in use.
- To protect the lens contact points, do not place the lens with its mount surface facing down. In addition, do not allow the lens contact points to become dirty. See illustration A
