Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
 Safety Precautions
1. Do not look at the sun or a bright light source through 
the lens or camera.
 Doing so could result in loss of 
vision. Looking at the sun directly through the lens is 
especially hazardous. 
2. Whether it is attached to the camera or not, do not 
leave the lens under the sun without the lens cap 
 This is to prevent the lens from concentrating 
the sun’s rays, which could cause a fire.
 Handling Cautions
If the lens is taken from a cold environment into a warm 
one, condensation may develop on the lens surface and 
internal parts.
 To prevent condensation in this case, first 
put the lens into an airtight plastic bag before taking it 
from a cold to warm environment. Then take out the lens 
after it has warmed gradually. Do the same when taking 
the lens from a warm environment into a cold one.
