Sony 500mm User's manual
2-685-148-11(1) Lens for Digital Single Lens Reﬂex Camera • Be careful not to subject the lens to mechanical shock while attaching it. • Always place the lens caps on the lens when storing. • Do not keep the lens in a very humid place for a long period of time to prevent mold. • Do not hold the camera by the lens part extended for focusing, etc. • Do not touch the lens contacts. If dirt, etc., gets on the lens contacts, it may interfere or prevent the sending and receiving of signals between the lens and the camera, resulting in operational malfunction. Condensation If your lens is brought directly from a cold place to a warm place, condensation may appear on the lens. To avoid this, place the lens in a plastic bag or something similar. When the air temperature inside the bag reaches the surrounding temperature, take the lens out. Cleaning the lens • Do not touch the surface of the lens directly. • If the lens gets dirty, brush off dust with a lens blower and wipe with a soft, clean cloth (Cleaning Cloth KK-CA (optional) is recommended). • Do not use any organic solvent, such as thinner or benzine, to clean the lens or the camera cone.

To remove the lens For the customers in the U.S.A. • When the focusing ring is rotating, do not interfere with it. 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. MF (manual focus) CAUTION • The focusing ring can be rotated slightly past the inﬁnity to provide accurate focusing under various operating temperatures. Do not rotate the focusing ring all the way to the end when focusing manually, even at inﬁnity. Look through the viewﬁnder and set the focus precisely. You are cautioned that any changes or modiﬁcations not expressly approved in this manual could void your authority to operate this equipment. While pressing and holding the lens release button on the camera, rotate the lens counterclockwise until it stops, then detach the lens. To attach the front lens cap Always attach the front lens cap with the lens hood attached. Focusing AF (auto focus) When using AF, the camera focuses the lens automatically. When using cameras with a wide focus frame, use a central local focus frame or a spot focus frame. Other local focus frames cannot be used. 50 When focusing manually, set your camera to MF and rotate the focusing ring while looking through the viewﬁnder until the subject appears clearly. The focus signal in the viewﬁnder indicates the current condition of the focus. 100 To reduce ﬁre or shock hazard, do not expose the unit to rain or moisture. Do not directly look at the sun through this lens. Doing so might harm your eyes or cause loss of eyesight. Keep the lens out of reach of small children. There is danger of accident or injury. NOTE: 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. – Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. – Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. For the customers in Canada This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003. Notes on use • Do not leave the lens in direct sunlight. If sunlight is focused onto a nearby object, it may cause a ﬁre. If circumstances necessitate leaving the lens in direct sunlight, be sure to attach the lens cap. 100 To use a focus-hold button Press the focus-hold button in AF to cancel AF. The focus is ﬁxed and you can release the shutter on the ﬁxed focus. Release the focus-hold button while pressing the shutter button halfway to start AF again. • The function of the focus-hold button can be changed on cameras with custom function capability. Refer to the camera manuals for details. Selecting shooting modes The aperture of the lens is ﬁxed at f/8. Use the P, A or M mode (When using A or M mode, you can only set the aperture to f/8). • When using S mode, the exposure may not be correct, depending on the set shutter speed. 50 Changing the plug-in ﬁlters The lens itself has no aperture adjustment. To adjust the amount of light, attach the supplied normal ﬁlter or ND4X ﬁlter. The plug-in ﬁlters are component parts of the optical system. Be sure to attach either the normal ﬁlter or the ND4X ﬁlter when taking pictures. Use the normal ﬁlter generally. When you shoot a bright subject or when you want to slow down the shutter speed, attach the ND4X ﬁlter (The amount of light is reduced by 2 stops, which is equivalent to f/16). • The depth-of ﬁeld is not affected by attaching the ND4X ﬁlter. To change the plug-in ﬁlter 1 2 3 Push down the plug-in ﬁlter lock and turn it counterclockwise 90° until the white index is aligned with the plug-in ﬁlter, and then lift the plug-in ﬁlter up. Align the plug-in ﬁlter lock index with the plug-in ﬁlter, face the side marked NORMAL or ND4X to the camera body, and then insert the plug-in ﬁlter into the lens barrel. Push down the plug-in ﬁlter lock and turn it clockwise 90° to lock. • The plug-in ﬁlter lock index is perpendicular to the plug-in ﬁlter. About ND4X ﬁlter • An ND4X ﬁlter is provided attached inside the front lens cap. • You can carry the ND4X ﬁlter attached inside the front lens cap.
