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.
•  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.
Precautions for flash use
Due to the lens’ wide angle of view, edges of pictures will tend to be dark in 
combination with a flash. Countermeasures, such as using bounce flash with 
an external flash is recommended.

 Attaching/detaching the lens
To attach the lens
1
  Remove the rear and front lens caps and the camera body cap.
2
  Align the orange index on the lens barrel with the orange index on the 
camera (mounting index), then insert the lens into the camera mount and 
rotate it clockwise until it locks.
•  Do not press the lens release button on the camera when mounting the lens.
•  Do not mount the lens at an angle.
Vignetting
When you use lens, the corners of the screen become darker than the center. 
To reduce this phenomena (called vignetting), close the aperture by 1 to 2 
stops.
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 attach the front lens cap
Attach the front lens cap fully, and pull the string.
To remove the lens
While pressing and holding the lens release button on the camera, rotate the 
lens counterclockwise until it stops, then detach the lens.
 Focusing
When using the auto focus, the camera focuses the lens automatically.  
When focusing manually, set your camera to the manual focus and rotate the focusing ring while looking through the 
viewfinder. The focus signal in the viewfinder indicates the current condition of the focus.
Note
This lens is a wide angle type. Make sure the shoulder-strap, your fingers, etc., are not in the frame when a picture is taken.
Depth-of-field scale
When focus is set on a subject, anything at that same distance will appear sharp, and anything within a certain range before 
and beyond the subject will also appear in focus; this is called depth of field. Depth of field depends on the subject distance 
and aperture you choose and is indicated by the lines on the depth-of-field scale corresponding to the aperture.
•  The depth-of-field scale and depth-of-field table are for 35mm-format cameras. The depth-of-field is shallower when you use Digital 
Single Lens Reflex Cameras equipped with an APS-C sized image sensor.
