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
General Precautions
When using the lens with film single-lens reflex camera
●● The drive speed of the focus lens will be slower than when the lens is used with a digital camera.

ENG-10
5. 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).
<ON>
<OFF>
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 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.
●● When panning subjects in motion.
●● In situations where fast shutter settings cannot be used.
ENG-11
Image Stabilizer
●● The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a
blurred shot caused by a subject that moved.
●● Set the STABILIZER switch to <OFF> when
you are taking pictures using the Bulb setting
(long exposures). If the STABILIZER switch is
set to <ON>, the image stabilizer function may
introduce errors.
●● 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.
●● 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.
●● With the EOS-1V/HS, 3, ELAN 7E/ELAN
7/30/33, ELAN 7NE/ELAN 7N/30V/33V, ELAN II/
ELAN II E/50/50E, REBEL 2000/300, IX, IX Lite/
IX7, and D30, the Image Stabilizer will not work
during self-timer operation.
●● Using a tripod also stabilizes the image.
However, depending on the kind of tripod and
shooting conditions, sometimes it may be better
to turn off the Image Stabilizer function.
●● 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.
●● Depending on the camera there may be image
shake, such as after releasing the shutter.
However, this does not 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.
ENG-12

7. Infinity Compensation Mark
See “6. Lens Information Display” and switch
the display mode to “Focusing distance display
mode.”
8. Depth-of-Field Scale
See “6. Lens Information Display” and switch
the display mode to “Focusing distance display
mode.”
Infinity compensation mark
Distance index
To compensate for shifting of the infinity focus
point that results from changes in temperature,
there is a margin at the infinity (∞) position.
The infinity position at normal temperature is the
point at which the vertical line of the distance
scale L mark is aligned with the distance index.
For accurate manual focusing of subjects at infinity,
look through the viewfinder or look at the magnified
image* on the LCD screen while rotating the
focusing ring.
* When using the lens with cameras capable of Live
View shooting, the infinity position can be checked by
magnifying the image.
The depth of field is the distance in front of and
behind the plane of focus on the subject that
appears sharp. The depth of field is indicated by
the area between the depth-of-field scale lines
below the distance scale. The numbers on the
scale are F values.
●● The depth-of-field scale position changes due
to zooming. For f/8, when the display space
becomes narrow the display disappears and only
the scale which shows f/8 is displayed. When
moving closer to the telephoto end (300 mm), the
scale which shows f/8 also disappears.
●● The depth-of-field scale is only to serve as a
guide.
