1. Storage and mildew prevention
• Take the lens out of the protective case or camera bag, and store it in a dry,
well-ventilated place.
• Avoid storing the lens in a poorly ventilated location such as a closet, wardrobe, drawer, vehicle, or where insect repellent or medicine is kept.
• Avoid storing the lens in areas of high temperature and humidity, where there
is a risk of mildew growth.
Store the lens with a desiccant in a dry cabinet, airtight container, or plastic
bag. (Leaving a saturated desiccant in the storage container can cause damage to the lens. Be sure to read the instructions that come with the desiccant
before use.)
2. The lens is not waterproof. When using the lens in a rain or mist, be careful
not to allow it to get wet.
3. Never use any organic solvent such as thinner, alcohol, or benzine, etc. to
remove dust on the lens.
4. The lens is a precise optical instrument. Be careful not to let it fall, or subject
it to strong shocks or pressure. Use a cushion or similar pad to protect the
lens from the vibrations of motorcycles or other vehicles, boats, etc.

A zoom lens has two rings: The
focusing ring at the front of the lens
and the zoom ring behind it. Turn the
zoom ring to obtain the desired angle
of view (focal distance).
* Whenever you turn the zoom ring
to change the angle of view (focal
distance), the focus may also
change slightly. First turn the zoom
ring, then focus.
FA lens-Body.indd 9
About the zoom ring
Turning the zoom ring to the right
gets a [Telephoto] effect, making the
subject look larger. Turning it to the
left gets a [Wide angle] effect, covering a wider area.

Changing the Lens
1. Align the mount index red dots
on the camera body and lens and
attach the lens. Turn the lens clockwise until it locks in place.
2. To detach the lens, hold down the
camera's lens unlock button, then
turn the lens counterclockwise.
* When attaching a lens, do not press the camera's lens unlock button. Doing
so causes improper lens attachment.
* After attaching a lens, turn the lens counterclockwise slightly to make sure the
lens is locked in place.

Setting autofocus
Push the focusing ring forward until
you can see AUTO FOCUS.
* When the lens is set for autofocus,
the focusing ring locks.
FA lenses
With FA  lenses, shift the focusing ring forward or back to switch
between autofocus and manual
focus.
FA lens-Body.indd 13
Setting manual focus
Pull the focusing ring until AUTO
FOCUS is hidden. Turn the focusing
ring to focus manually.

* If your camera has a KAF2 mount,
you can still switch between autofocus and manual focus with the
lens focusing ring even when the
camera has been set to autofocus.
* If you have a camera (such as the
SF-series) having a KAF mount, set
both the camera and lens focus
mode switch to the same setting. If
the camera is set to autofocus [AF
single] and the lens is set to manual focus, you cannot take a picture
until the camera's focus indicator
lights.
* If you use a camera which does not
have autofocus, focus manually.
FA lens-Body.indd 14
* The telephoto lens' focusing ring
stops turning at slightly past the ∞
infinity symbol. This is because,
the point of focus changes depending on the temperature, and sometimes the focus is achieved beyond
the ∞ infinity symbol.
* Even when focusing at infinity,
always look through the viewfinder to make sure the subject is in
focus.
* When the lens is set for manual
focus, the focusing ring can continue to turn even past the minimum
focusing distance or infinity mark.

About the Zoom Lens Aperture
Zoom lenses whose maximum aperture
varies depending on the focal length
have a [Minimum length] aperture
index for the shortest focal length and a
[Maximum length] aperture index for the
longest focal length. To set the aperture
to A [Auto], turn the aperture ring to the
white [Short focal length index] at the
center (regardless of the focal length) as
shown in the illustration.
For the longer focal lengths, if you want
FA lens-Body.indd 16
to set an aperture other than A, align the
aperture ring with the long focal length's
aperture.
For example, with a 28-105mm zoom
lens set to 105mm, set the f/8 aperture
by aligning the aperture ring's f/8 to the
[Long focal length aperture index] mark
on the left of the white index.
* When setting the aperture manually
at a middle focal length, use the aperture index for the short and long focal
lengths as a reference.
2008/09/30 17:02:36
17
Apertures and Click Stops
Certain lenses have a white dot next
to the maximum aperture. The white
dot indicates a difference of one aperture stop. For example, as shown on
the right, the white dot next to f/2
indicates f/2.8.
If there is no white dot for a click stop between the f/numbers, the click stop
indicates the respective f/number shown below. Also, certain lenses have no
intermediate click stop at both ends of the aperture scale due to a lack of space.
Do not set the aperture ring to a position where there is no click stop.

If you use infrared film with an R2
or O2 filter, the point of focus differs
from normal shooting (with visible
light). This means the point of focus
must be corrected.
* Infrared film cannot be used with
camthe MZ-S, MZ-60, and
eras since these cameras use
infrared light to detect film transport
operations.

When the subject is in focus in the viewfinder, note the point of focus on the
distance scale (shown in the left illustration). Then turn the focusing ring so the
respective point of focus on the distance
scale is aligned with the infrared index
mark, as shown in the right illustration.
* Before turning the focusing ring, set
the focus mode to manual focus.
* To determine the proper exposure,
refer to the film's instruction manual.
2008/09/30 17:02:37

Zoom Lens Infrared Index
With a zoom lens, the focusing correction amount for infrared film shooting varies depending on the focal
length.
As shown in the illustration, zoom
lenses have an infrared index.
Correct the focus with respect to the
focal length used.

Lens Hood
The lens hood can be round, square,
or built-in. Using a lens hood is recommended for preventing internal
lens reflections. Suitable hoods are
listed on the next page.
Note:
* Do not use a lens hood if you are
using the camera's built-in flash.
The hood may obstruct the flash,
causing darkened areas in the picture. In the case of the FA 43mm
f/1.9 lens, the flash can be used
with the hood attached.

Attaching a Square Lens Hood
1. The hood attaches in the same
way as a lens cap. While holding
down the two knurled tabs, attach
the hood to the front of the lens.
FA lens-Body.indd 23
2. The square hood should be positioned horizontally on the lens. If it
is tilted, vignetting may occur.
2008/09/30 17:02:37

Using the Built-in Lens Hood
To use the built-in lens hood, pull it
out from the lens. In the case of the
FA 600mm f/4 lens, the built-in lens
hood is threaded. To extend or retract
it, turn the hood. For details, see the
FA lens instruction manual.

PL Filter Window
Certain hoods also have a PL filter
window. This enables you to easily
rotate any polarizing or circular polarizing filter attached to the lens.

FA lens-Body.indd 25
Using the PL filter window
1. Remove the PL filter window cap
by sliding it downward, as shown
by the arrow.
2008/09/30 17:02:37
26
2. From the PL filter window, turn the
polarizing or circular polarizing filter.
FA lens-Body.indd 26
3. Reattach the PL filter window cap.
* Before shooting, be sure the cap
has been reattached so that the
hood can provide the maximum
effect.
2008/09/30 17:02:37
Tripod Mount
27
The FA 600mm f/4 lens has a tripod mount so you can mount the lens on a
tripod.
Switching between horizontal and vertical shooting
Loosen the lens orientation lock screw and turn the lens by 90˚ left or right.
Then tighten the lens orientation lock screw.

Filters
Select the filter matching the lens
filter size, then screw it onto the front
of the lens.
* The FA 600mm f/4ED (IF) lens
has a filter holder in the rear to
hold the 43mm filter provided with
the lens. For details, see the FA
lens instruction manual.
Filter Cautions
When attached to the lens, the filter becomes part of the lens optics.
Therefore, handle it in the same way
as the lens. Keep it clean from dust,
scratches, smudges, etc. Except for a
circular polarizing filter, avoid attaching more than one filter to the lens.
Using multiple filters is not effective.

Note: Using a Circular Polarizing
Filter
* In the case of the FA 77mm f/1.8
Limited lens, attaching certain discontinued circular polarizing filters
(including the PENTAX Type-A
Circular Polarizing Filter) prevents
the built-in hood from being pulled
out.
* With an autofocus camera, use a
circular polarizing filter instead of
a polarizing filter. A polarizing filter
affects the accuracy of the autofocus and exposure.
FA lens-Body.indd 29
Note: Attaching a Specialized Hood
If the PENTAX Type-A Circular Polarizing
Filter (discontinued) is attached to the
FA 28-105mm f/3.2-4.5AL (IF) lens,
you cannot attach the specialized lens
hood since it hits the filter's outer edge.
Also, attaching a non-PENTAX circular
polarizing filter may still prevent the
specialized hood from being attached.

Cautions When Using Flash
With the built-in flash
Use the built-in flash for subjects at least
0.7 meter away. If the subject is closer
than 0.7 meter, overexposure may result.
The built-in flash can usually be used with
a lens as long as the | | symbol does not
blink in the camera as a warning.
However, with certain lenses vignetting
may still occur even if there is no blinking
symbol warning. It is also possible for a
lens to trigger the blinking symbol warning,
but still be used with no problem.
For details, see the built-in flash compatibility table on page 31.
, the blinking | | symbol
With the
warning does not appear in the camera
even if the lens is unsuitable for the built-in
flash. To find out whether the lens is suit's built-in flash, see the
able with the
camera's instruction manual.
When using the built-in flash, remove any
lens hood. The lens hood may obstruct the
built-in flash.
FA lens-Body.indd 30
* The FA 43mm f/1.9 Limited lens is
compatible with the built-in flash even
with the lens hood attached.
With an external flash
If you use an external flash, you
can use the lens with the lens hood
attached. For details, see the external
flash's instruction manual.
With the AF500FTZ flash
If the AF500FTZ flash is used with an
FA lens shorter than 24mm, the flash
does not show a blinking focal length
display as a warning.
