USING YOUR LENS SAFELY
1
Although we have carefully designed these lenses for safe operation, please pay special
attention to items marked with the following symbols when using this product.
WARNING
This symbol indicates precautions that if not followed,
could result in serious injuries to the user.
CAUTION
This symbol indicates precautions that if not followed,
could result in minor or medium injuries to the user or
damage to the equipment.
WARNING
• Never look at the sun through the lens or camera for a long time. Serious damage
to the retina or total loss of eyesight may occur, particularly when looking directly
through the lens.
CAUTION
• Do not leave the lens in direct sunlight without the lens cap. Direct sunlight
passing through the lens will be intensified, and should it focus on flammable
materials, fire may occur.

PRECAUTIONS AND LENS MAINTENANCE
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 following lenses are dust and water resistant.
(DA 300mm f/4ED [IF] SDM, DA 200mm f/2.8ED [IF] SDM, DA 16-50mm f/2.8ED AL [IF] SDM,
DA 50-135mm f/2.8ED [IF] SDM)
Lenses other than those listed above are not dust and water resistant. Be careful not to allow dust,
dirt, water, harmful gases, salt, or other materials to get on those lenses.
3. When the lens is not attached to the camera body, attach both the supplied lens cap and lens mount
cap to protect it from dust, etc.
4. Never use any organic solvent such as thinner, alcohol, or benzine, etc. to remove dust on the lens.
5. 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.
6. Avoid subjecting the lens to rapid changes in temperature, otherwise condensation can occur on
both the inside and the outside of the lens. Put the lens in a plastic bag or camera bag, and take it
out after the lens has reached ambient temperature.
7. Do not leave the camera with the lens cap off attached to a tripod or other rigid camera support. The
inner parts of the camera can be damaged by direct sunlight.
8. Have the lens inspected by a dealer every one or two years to maintain its high performance.

FEATURES OF THE smc PENTAX-DA LENS
• The smc PENTAX-DA lens is an interchangeable lens specifically designed for digital
cameras. Its image circle is specialized for the image sensor (23.5 x 15.7mm) and its
optical system is optimized for the characteristics of digital images.
• When autofocusing is finished, it is possible to make fine adjustments by hand using the
“Quick-Shift Focus System” (see page 17 for details).
• Lenses that have “SDM” in their name are equipped with a supersonic motor. When
mounted on a camera that supports supersonic motors, the autofocus is quiet and
smooth.
• The following lenses are dust and water resistant because each part is individually
sealed. This makes it difficult for dust and water to enter inside the lens.

• The mechanism does not allow the angle of rotation of the focusing ring and the distance
scale to align while focusing. Always check the focus using the view finder before taking
a picture. This is especially true with manual focus and the Quick-Shift Focus System.

(For DA 16-45mm f/4ED AL, DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL II, DA18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL)
In the close-distance scale range (the orange area on the distance scale), when shooting at
the maximum aperture, image quality deterioration in the picture corners may result
because of the optical characteristics of the lens.
When taking a picture in this range, we recommend that you use a smaller aperture,
stopping down from full aperture.

FILTERS

Make sure the filter size matches the lens, then screw the filter onto the front of the lens.
" Memo:
• The compatible filter size for each lens is listed on pages 44-49.
• Filters cannot be mounted on the DA FISH-EYE 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5ED [IF].
Precaution on filters
• Since a filter becomes a part of the optical system when attached on the lens, handle it in
the same way you handle the lens with care to dust, dirt and scratches. Normally,
attaching two or more filters on a lens does more harm than good. However, attaching a
circular polarizing filter and another filter would not be a problem.
• Use a circular polarizing filter with an autofocus camera for proper exposure and
autofocusing.
Attaching the 30.5mm filter to the DA 40mm f/2.8 Limited lens
Normally, you attach the 49mm filter to the front of the lens. But you can also screw a
30.5mm filter to the back of the dedicated hood.

attached.
" Memo:
• The lens hood cannot be mounted on some circular polarizing filters that are not
produced by PENTAX, depending on the type.

Circular polarizing filters and vignetting
Circular polarizing filters are thicker than regular filters. Depending on the lens that is
mounted and the shooting conditions, vignetting may occur in the four corners of the image.
Refer to the “Compatibility table for PENTAX circular polarizing filters” on the following page
for information on compatibility of the PENTAX circular polarizing filters (currently not
available) with various lenses. There are two types of PENTAX circular polarizing filters: the
A type (on the left in the diagram below) and the B type (on the right in the diagram below).
The B type filter is thinner than the A type filter.

PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING THE LENS WITH A FLASH
Built-in Flash
The built-in flash can not be used when the distance is less than 0.7m. When the flash is
used within 0.7m, it causes incorrect exposure control and vignetting in the picture corners.
• Refer to the “Compatibility of DA Lenses with the Built-in Flash” chart on page 40 for
information on the compatibility of the built-in flash with the lens being used.
• If the built-in flash is used with the lens hood attached to the lens, the flash light will be
blocked by the lens hood. Always make sure to remove the lens hood before using the
built-in flash.
External Flash
The external flash can be used while the lens hood is attached. However, the following
conditions apply to some types of lens.
zDA 14mm f/2.8ED [IF]
The AF540FGZ and AF360FGZ external flash units can only be used when the wide-angle
panel is used (it is also possible to use the lens hood). Other external flash units are not
recommended because their coverage angle is not compatible with the angle of view of the
lens.
zDA 21mm f/3.2 AL Limited
External flash units can be used while the lens hood is mounted without problems if it is
possible to set their zoom [coverage angle] up to 28mm.
zDA FISH-EYE 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5ED [IF]
External flash units cannot be used because their coverage angle is not compatible with the
angle of view of the lens.
e_kl567_16.fm Page 39 Wednesday, April 23, 2008 11:42 AM
39
zDA 12-24mm f/4ED AL [IF]
PENTAX external flash units which cover a 24mm lens on a 35mm SLR, or 16mm lens on a
digital SLR, can be used when the lens is set from 16mm to 24mm.
AF540FGZ and AF360FGZ can be used from 13mm to 24mm with the wide angle panel (In
both cases, it is possible to use the lens hood). Please note that at focal lengths less than
13mm the corners of the picture will not be fully illuminated.
Other external flash units are not recommended, because their coverage angle is not wide
enough to cover the angle of view of the lens.
zDA 16-50mm f/2.8ED AL [IF] SDM
zDA 16-45mm f/4ED AL
PENTAX external flash units which cover a 24mm lens on a 35mm SLR, or 16mm lens on a
digital SLR, can be used with the lens hood without problems.
* For more information, refer to the manual for the external flash unit.
