Notes on use
•  Do not leave the teleconverter in direct sunlight. If sunlight is focused onto 
a nearby object, it may cause a fire. If circumstances necessitate leaving the 
teleconverter in direct sunlight, be sure to attach the lens cap.
•  Be careful not to subject the teleconverter to mechanical shock while attaching 
it.
•  Always place the lens caps on the teleconverter when storing.
•  Do not keep the teleconverter in a very humid place for a long period of time to 
prevent mold.
•  Hold both the camera and lens, when you carry the camera with the lens 
attached.
•  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 teleconverter in 
a plastic bag or something similar. When the air temperature inside the bag 
reaches the surrounding temperature, take the teleconverter out.
Cleaning the teleconverter
•  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 
teleconverter.
