Safety Precautions
Precautions to ensure that the camera is used
safely. Read these precautions thoroughly. Make
sure all details are observed in order to prevent
risks and injury to the user and other people.
pertaining to risks that may
Warning Details
result in death or serious injury.
●● Do not look at the sun or a bright light source
through the lens or single-lens reflex 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.
Caution
Details pertaining to risks that may
result in injury.
●● Do not leave the camera in locations subject to
high or low temperatures. This may result in the
camera becoming excessively hot or cold, which may
cause burns or other injuries when touched.
●● Do not insert your fingers inside the camera.
Failure to observe this may result in injury.
Caution
Details pertaining to risks that may
result in damage to property.
●● Do not leave the lens in excessive heat such as in a
car in direct sunlight. High temperatures can cause the
lens to malfunction.
ENG-2
General Precautions
Handling Precautions
●● Make sure that the power zoom control contacts (see
p.6) are kept free of soiling, scratches, fingerprints, etc.
Failure to observe this may result in faulty contacts or
corrosion, which may lead to the power zoom adapter
(see p.13) malfunctioning. Clean the contact points
with a soft cloth in the event of soiling or fingerprints,
etc., adhering.
●● 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.
●● Please also read any lens related handling precautions
listed in your camera’s instruction manual.
ENG-3
General Precautions
Shooting Precautions
This lens uses nano-USM as the drive unit for the focus lens (the lens that aligns the focus).
The motor also controls the focus lens during zooming.
1. When the camera is OFF
The motor does not operate while the camera is OFF or when the camera is OFF due to the use of the auto
power off function. Therefore, users must be aware of the following points.
●● Manual focus adjustments are not possible.
●● During zooming, delayed focus will occur.
2. When the lens is in sleep mode
If not operated for a certain period of time, this lens will enter sleep mode in order to save power. Sleep mode
differs from when the camera is OFF due to the use of the auto power off function.
In this state, the motor will not operate even if the camera is ON. Therefore, users must be aware of the following
points.
●● Manual focus adjustments are not possible.
●● During zooming, delayed focus will occur.
●● To exit sleep mode, press the shutter button halfway.
ENG-4
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This
device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this
device must accept any interference received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.

required to stop operation of the equipment.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a class B digital device, pursuant to part 15
of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a
residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
interference to radio communications.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not
occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does
cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.

Mounting and
Detaching the Lens

Zooming
See your camera’s instructions for details on
mounting and detaching the lens.
To zoom, turn the lens’ zoom ring.
●● After detaching the lens, place the lens with
the rear end up to prevent the lens surface and
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.
●● Attach the lens cap and dust cap when
disconnecting the lens. When attaching the
dust cap, align the lens mount index with the 
index of the dust cap and rotate in a clockwise
direction as shown in the illustration. Follow the
reverse procedure to detach it.
●● Be sure to finish zooming before focusing.
Zooming after focusing can affect the focus.
●● Blurring may temporarily occur if the zoom ring is
quickly rotated.
●● Zooming when the camera is OFF will result in
delayed focus.
●● Zooming during still image exposure will result in
delayed focus. This causes any streaks of light
that are captured during exposure to be blurred.

Setting the Focus Mode
●● Quickly rotating the focusing ring may result in
delayed focus.
●● Manual focus adjustments are not possible when
the camera is OFF.
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.
After autofocusing in ONE SHOT AF mode, focus
manually by pressing the shutter button halfway
and turning the focusing ring. (Full-time manual
focus)

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.
1 Rotate the zoom ring to the
widest position (18 mm).
2Slide the zoom ring lock
lever in the direction
indicated by the arrow.
●● To release the zoom ring, slide
the zoom ring lock lever in the
direction opposite to the arrow.
The zoom ring cannot be fixed in place at any position other than the
widest position.

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).
1 Set the STABILIZER switch to ON.
●● If you are not going to use the image stabilizer
function, set the switch to OFF.
2When 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, resulting in fewer shots
and a shorter movie shooting time.
●● When shooting a still subject, it compensates for
camera shake in all directions.
●● 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.
●● Even with a monopod, the Image Stabilizer will
be as effective as during hand-held shooting.
However, depending on the shooting conditions,
there are cases in which the Image Stabilizer
effect may be less effective.
●● The image stabilizer function also operates when the
lens is used with an Extension Tube EF12 II or EF25 II.
●● The Image Stabilizer will operate even when you
press the button assigned to the AF function with
the camera’s Custom Functions.

■ Dynamic IS Function
The EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is
equipped with dynamic IS, effective when
shooting while walking since it expands the IS
range.
●● Achieves effective IS at the wide end.
●● Automatically activates when the camera is set
to Movie Shooting.
