Features
1. The Image Stabilizer gives the equivalent
effect of a shutter speed four stops faster*.
This function provides optimal image
stabilization depending on shooting conditions
(such as shooting still subjects and following
shots).
2. Aspherical and UD lens elements result in
outstanding image delineation.
3. The zoom ring can be fixed to keep the lens
at the shortest point.
4. A truly round aperture hole results in a nicer
background blur.

* Based on [1/(focal length x 1.6)] second. Generally,
it requires a shutter speed [1/focal length] second or
faster to prevent camera shake (in 35mm format.
With an EF-S lens, it would be [1/(focal length x
1.6)] second).
Warning to prevent lens or camera
malfunction or damage.
Supplementary notes on using the lens
and taking pictures.
ENG-1
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
Y
P
O
• 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.

Mounting and Detaching the Lens
Setting the Focus Mode
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 ¢ index of the dust cap as shown
in the diagram, and turn clockwise. To remove
it, reverse the order.

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.

Hood (Sold Separately)
The EW-78D hood can keep unwanted light out
of the lens, and also protects the lens from rain,
snow, and dust.
To attach the hood, align the hood’s attachment
position mark with the red dot on the front of the
lens, then turn the hood as shown by the arrow
until the lens' red dot is aligned with the hood's
stop position mark.
The hood can be reverse-mounted on the lens
for storage.

Zooming
To zoom, turn the lens’ zoom ring.

Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
Changing the zoom ring after focusing can affect
the focus.
¡Part of the picture may be blocked if the hood is
not attached properly.
¡When attaching or detaching the hood, grasp
the base of the hood to turn it. To prevent
deformation, do not grasp the rim of the hood to
turn it.

Fixing the Zoom Ring
The zoom ring can be fixed to keep the lens at the shortest point. This function is convenient for
carrying a camera on a strap because it prevents the lens from extending.

Image Stabilizer
You can use the image stabilizer in AF or MF
mode.
This function provides optimal image stabilization
depending on shooting conditions (such as
shooting still subjects and following shots).

When you press the shutter button
halfway, the Image Stabilizer will
start operating.
¡Make sure the image in the viewfinder is
stable, then press the shutter button the
rest of the way down to take the picture.
¡The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a
blurred shot caused by a subject that moved.
¡The Image Stabilizer may not be fully effective if
you shoot from a violently shaking vehicle or
other transportation.
¡The Image Stabilizer consumes more power
than normal shooting, so fewer shots can be
taken if you use the function.

¡It compensates for vertical camera shake during
following shots in a horizontal direction, and
compensates for horizontal camera shake
during following shots in a vertical direction.
¡When you use a tripod, the Image Stabilizer
should be turned off to save battery power.
¡The stabilizer is equally effective for hand-held
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.
¡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.

Image Stabilizer
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.
