EF35mm f/2 IS USM is a wide-angle single focus lens that provide high image quality. ● “IS” stands for Image Stabilizer. ● “USM” stands for Ultrasonic Motor.

Safety Precautions

● 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. ● Whether it is attached to the camera or not, do not leave the lens under the sun without the lens cap attached. 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. ● Do not leave the lens in excessive heat such as in a car in direct sunlight. High temperatures can cause the lens to malfunction. Conventions used in this instruction Warning to prevent lens or camera malfunction or damage. Supplementary notes on using the lens and taking pictures.

1. Mounting and Detaching the Lens

See your camera’s instructions for details on mounting and detaching the lens. ● After detaching the lens, place the lens with the rear end up to prevent the lens surface and contacts from getting scratched. ● If the contacts get soiled, scratched, or have fingerprints on them, corrosion or faulty connections can result. The camera and lens may not operate properly. ● If the contacts get soiled or have fingerprints on them, clean them with a soft cloth. ● If you remove the lens, cover it with the dust cap. To attach it properly, align the lens mount index and the ○ index of the dust cap, and turn clockwise ● ❶ . To remove it, reverse the order.

3. Infinity Compensation Mark

To compensate for shifting of the infinity focus point that results from changes in temperature. The infinity position at normal temperature is the point at which the vertical line of the distance scale L mark is aligned with the distance index ❹ . For accurate manual focusing of subjects at infinity, look through the viewfinder or look at the magnified image* on the LCD screen while rotating the focusing ring. * For cameras with Live View shooting capability.

4. Image Stabilizer

You can use the Image Stabilizer in AF or MF mode. This function provides optimal image stabilization depending on shooting conditions (such as shooting still subjects and following shots). 1. Set the STABILIZER switch to ON ❺ . ● If you are not going to use the image stabilizer function, set the switch to OFF. 2. When you press the shutter button halfway, the Image Stabilizer will start operating. ● Make sure the image in the viewfinder is stable, then press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. ● The Image Stabilizer cannot compensate for a blurred shot caused by a subject that moved. ● The Image Stabilizer may not be fully effective if you shoot from a violently shaking vehicle or other transportation. ● The Image Stabilizer consumes more power than normal shooting, so fewer shots can be ta
