malfunction or damage.
Features
1. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent
effect of a shutter speed three stops faster.*
2. Aspheric and super UD lens elements for
excellent imaging performance.
3. Ultrasonic motor (USM) for quick and quiet
autofocusing.
4. Manual focusing is available after the subject
comes into focus in autofocus mode (ONE
SHOT AF).
5. A truly round aperture hole results in a nicer
background blur.
6. Tight seal structure ensures excellent dustproof and drip-proof performance.

* Based on [1/focal length] second. Generally, it requires
a shutter speed [1/focal length] second or faster to
prevent camera shake.

a Safety Precautions
a Safety 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
fire.
Handling Cautions
C
• 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.

1. Mounting 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 K index of the dust cap as shown
in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove it,
reverse the order.
C
The lens mount has a rubber ring for enhanced
water- and dust-resistance. The rubber ring may
cause slight abrasions around the camera's lens
mount, but this will not cause any problems. If the
rubber ring becomes worn, it is replaceable by a
Canon Service Center at cost.

2. Setting the Focus Mode
3. Zooming
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. The focusing ring always works,
regardless of the focus mode.
C
To zoom, turn the lens’ zoom ring.
Y

Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
Changing the zoom ring after focusing can affect
the focus.
After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus
manually by pressing the shutter button halfway
and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual
focus)

down to take the picture.
The image stabilizer in this lens is
effective for hand-held shots under
the following conditions.
¡In semi-darkened areas such as
indoors or outdoors at night.
¡In locations where flash
photography is prohibited, such as
art museums and theater stages.
¡In situations where your footing is
uncertain.
¡In situations where fast shutter
settings cannot be used.
ENG-6
Image Stabilizer
¡The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate
for a blurred shot caused by a subject that
moved.
¡Set the STABILIZER switch to
when
you are taking pictures using the Bulb
setting (long exposures). If the
STABILIZER switch is set to
, the
image stabilizer function may introduce
errors.
¡The Image Stabilizer might not be fully
effective in the following cases:
• You move the camera for a panned shot.
• You shoot while riding on a bumpy road.
¡The Image Stabilizer consumes more
power than normal shooting, so fewer
shots can be taken if you use the function.
¡The image stabilizer operates for about
two seconds even when your finger is off
the shutter button. Do not remove the lens
while the stabilizer is in operation. This will
cause a malfunction.
C
¡With the EOS-1V/HS, 3, 30/33/Elan7/7E,
30V/33V/Elan7N/7NE, Elan ll/Elan ll
E/50/50 E, 300/Rebel2000, IX, and D30,
the Image Stabilizer will not work during
self-timer operation.
¡When you use a tripod, the Image
Stabilizer should be turned off to save
battery power.
¡The stabilizer is equally effective for handheld 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.
¡Pictures may look distorted after being
taken depending on the camera, but this
doesn't affect shooting.
¡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.

5. Infinity Compensation Mark
6. Infrared Index
Infinity compensation mark
Distance index
To compensate for shifting of the infinity focus
point that results from changes in temperature.
The infinity position at normal temperature is the
point at which the vertical line of the L mark is
aligned with the distance indicator on the
distance scale.
C
For accurate manual focusing on subjects at
infinity distance, look through the viewfinder while
rotating the focusing ring.
The infrared index corrects the focus setting
when using monochrome infrared film. Focus on
the subject manually, then adjust the distance
setting by moving the focusing ring to the
corresponding infrared index mark.
Y
P
O
Some EOS cameras cannot use infrared film. See
the instructions for your EOS camera.
¡The infrared index position is based on a
wavelength of 800 nm.
¡The compensation amount differs depending on
the focal length. Use the indicated focal length as
a guide when setting the compensation amount.
¡Be sure to observe the manufacturer’s
instructions when using infrared film.
¡Use a red filter also when you take the picture.
