  • Do not leave the lens in direct sunlight without the lens cap attached, whether the lens is attached to the camera or not. This will prevent the lens from concentrating the sun’s rays, which may cause a fire.
  • The shape of the mount is very complex. Please be careful when handling it so as not to cause injury.

In addition to the standard plastic front cap, a metal front cap is available for better integration.

  • This metal front cap is attached to the lens using a magnet. Please do not put credit cards (magnetic cards) or any other objects close to the magnet on the metal front cap as it could corrupt any data held on the object.
  • The metal front cap cannot be used with a filter. When using filters, please use the supplied plastic front cap.


A bayonet-type detachable hood is provided with the lens. This lens hood helps to prevent flare and ghost images caused by bright illumination from outside the picture area. Attach the hood and turn it clockwise until it stops rotation (fig.4).

  • To place the lens and hood into the storage case, you must first remove the hood, and then replace it with the lens in the reverse position (fig.5).


  • Avoid any shocks or exposure to extreme high or low temperatures or humidity.
  • For extended storage, choose a cool and dry place, preferably with good ventilation. To avoid damage to the lens coating, keep away from mothballs or naphthalene gas.
