FOR SAFE USE OF YOUR LENS
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 injury to the user.
CAUTION
This symbol indicates precautions that if not followed,
could result in minor or medium injury to the user or
damage to the equipment.
WARNING
• Never look at the sun through the lens or camera. Serious damage to the retina or total loss of

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 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.
5. 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.
6. When the lens is not attached to the camera body, attach both the supplied lens cap and lens
mountcap to protect it from dust.
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.

Changing the Focus Mode
Use the camera’s focus mode switch to change between the auto focus (SAF, CAF)
mode and manual focus mode. For details, refer to your camera’s manual.
1. Using Autofocus
Set the camera’s focus mode to autofocus(AF/SAF/CAF). Press the shutter button
halfway to autofocus.

《10》
Using the Quick-Shift Focus System (GX -series cameras only)
If you use the lens with an GX -series camera and the focus mode is set to autofocus,
you can focus manually after autofocus is achieved. Just turn the focusing ring to
manually touch-up the focus. You can do this without changing the focus mode to MF.
How to use the Quick-Shift Focus System

Set the camera’s focus mode switch to autofocus, then press the shutter button
halfway to autofocus.
With the GX camera set as explained by “Focusing with the OK Button” on page 9,
you can focus by pressing the OK button.
2. Hold down the shutter button halfway (or hold down the OK button) and
then turn the focusing ring to focus.
※ You can focus the subjec with the OK button (GX-1S / 1L) and the AF button
(GX-10/20).
3. Finally, press the shutter release button fully to take a picture.
《11》
CAUTION
During autofocusing, the focusing ring will rotate.
• To prevent malfunction, do not touch the focusing ring during autofocusing.

•
When using the Quick-Shift Focus System, keep pressing the shutter button
after you achieve focus before taking a picture. If you let go of the shutter
button before taking the picture, you will have to focus all over again when
you press the shutter button again. In the following cases, you can take the
picture without autofocusing after letting go of the shutter button.
- With the GX-1S/1L camera, use the [C Custom] menu to set [Cancel AF] for
[OK btn when shooting]. This will enable you to focus manually while you
hold down the OK button. The setting procedure and more details are
explained in the camera’s instruction manual.
- With the GX-10/20 camera, use the [CUSTOM1 MENU] menu to set [Cancel
AF] for [AF Button Function]. This will enable you to focus manually while
you hold down the AF button. The setting procedure and more details are
explained in the camera’s instruction manual.

Close-distance scale
Precautions on close-distance scale
(For SAMSUNG 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 AL, 16-45mm F/4 ED AL)
In the close-distance scale range, when shooting at the maximum aperture, image quality
deterioration in the corners of picture may occur because of the optical characteristics of
the lens.
When taking a picture in this range, we recommend that you use a smaller aperture with
stopping down from wide open.(When using the SAMSUNG 16-45mm lens, the aperture
value is fixed as F4.)
《13》
Zoom Ring
The zoom lens has a focusing ring at the front and a zoom ring behind it.
Turn the zoom ring to set the desired angle of view (lens focal length).
2. Memo:
•
The focusing point may shift slightly by changing the focal length. First adjust the zoom
and then adjust focus.
About the zoom ring
Turn the zoom ring clockwise for telephoto and counterclockwise for wide-angle.
《14》
ATTACHING THE LENS HOOD
In order to avoid the deterioration in image quality from internal reflection, use of the lens
hood is recommended.
Lens hood
attaching
index
When attaching the lens hood, align the index on the lens hood with the attaching index on
the lens, and push both parts straight toward each other. Attach the lens hood on the lens
by turning the hood in the clockwise direction to lock it as viewed from the front of the lens
until it clicks into position.
2. Memo:
•
•
When attaching the lens hood, hold the focus ring and zoom ring securely to prevent
them from turning.
When the lens hood is not in use, it can also be turned around and attached in the
reversed position.

About the PL filter window
If a circular polarizing filter is attached to the Schneider D-XENON/SAMSUNG lens, you
can easily turn the filter via the PL filter window on the bayonet-type hood.

- SAMSUNG 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 AL
- SAMSUNG 16-45mm F/4 ED AL
How to use the lens hood with polarizing filter window
1. Remove the PL filter window cap by sliding it in the direction as shown above.
2. Turn the outer rim of the circular polarizing filter from the PL filter window as shown
above.
《16》

3. Attach the PL filter window cap.
2. Memo:
•
When shooting, be sure the PL filter window cap is in place to make that the lens hood
is being used to maximum effect.
《17》
FILTERS
Make sure the filter size matches the lens and then attach the filter onto the lens.
2. Memo:
•
The compatible filter sizes for all the lenses are listed on pages 20.
2. Precaution on filters
•
•
•
•
•
Since the filter becomes a part of the optics 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 is not recommended. However, attaching a circular
polarizing filter and another filter would not be a problem.
Use a circular polarizing filter with Autofocus camera for proper exposure and
autofocusing.
According to the filter manufacturer, some circular polarizing filter can't be attached on
this lens hood.
Do not use filters at the same time. It may cause a decrease in image quality and
vignetting.
If you use a wide angle lens and the filter frame is thick, the vignetting may happen.
《18》
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, that causes incorrect exposure control and vignetting in the picture
corners.
• Refer to the “Compatibility of Lenses with the Built-in Flash” chart for information on the
compatibility of the built-in flash with the lens being used. Furthermore, please note that
when using the GX -series camera, a warning indication does not appear even when
taking a picture with a built-in flash that is incompatible with the lens being used.
• The built-in flash may be blocked by the lens hood. Always make sure to remove the
lens hood before using the built-in flash.
