Lens Care
• Keep the CPU contacts clean.
• Use a blower to remove dust and lint from the lens surfaces. To 
remove smudges and fingerprints, apply a small amount of ethanol 
or lens cleaner to a soft, clean cotton cloth or lens-cleaning tissue and 
clean from the center outwards using a circular motion, taking care 
not to leave smears or touch the glass with your fingers.
• Never use organic solvents such as paint thinner or benzene to clean 
the lens.
• The lens hood or NC filters can be used to protect the front lens 
• Attach the front and rear caps before placing the lens in its flexible 
• When a lens hood is attached, do not pick up or hold the lens or 
camera using only the hood.
• If the lens will not be used for an extended period, store it in a cool, 
dry location to prevent mold and rust. Do not store in direct sunlight 
or with naphtha or camphor moth balls.
• Keep the lens dry. Rusting of the internal mechanism can cause 
irreparable damage.
• Leaving the lens in extremely hot locations could damage or warp 
parts made from reinforced plastic.
