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.
Do not stand on top of the lens case. You may fall and
injure yourself. 
Do not pile lens cases on top of one another as they
may fall and cause injury.
Do not leave the lens in excessive heat such as in a
car in direct sunlight. High temperatures can cause
the lens to malfunction.
