CAUTIONS (continued)

To maintain your safety and prevent damage to the lens, please fully familiarize yourself with the following:

  • Do not look directly at the sun through the lens as it may seriously impair your vision.
  • Do not apply excessive force when attaching the lens to the camera as it may cause damage to the lens or your camera.
  • The lens is a precision optical product, so dropping or excessive impact may cause product failure.
  • Attach or detach the lens only while the camera is turned off.
  • Be careful not to touch or contaminate the contacts on the mount as it can adversely affect communication with the camera.
  • Protect the lens from water, high humidity, excessive heat, and cold.
  • Always store the lens with the lens cap on in a dry and well-ventilated location out of direct sunlight. Direct sunlight passing through the lens could become concentrated enough to cause a fire.
  • Avoid subjecting the lens to drastic temperature changes such as moving from a very cold outdoors location to a warm indoors location. This can cause moisture in the air to condense inside or on the outside of the lens and lead to failure or mold production. Before taking the lens indoors from a cold outdoors location, put the lens in a plastic bag or sealed camera bag and remove it only when the lens has warmed up to room temperature.


  • Remove the rear lens cap and the camera body cap.
  • For the Canon EF mount, align the red dot on the lens mount (white focusing scale line for Nikon mount) with the index mark on the lens mount of the camera.
  • Do not press the lens release button on the camera when mounting the lens.
  • For Canon EF mount, insert the lens into the camera mount and rotate it clockwise (counterclockwise for Nikon mount) until it“clicks” and locks in place. Do not insert the lens at an angle.
  • Remove the front lens cap when you are ready to shoot.


  • Attach the front lens cap.
  • For the Canon EF mount, while holding down the lens release button on the camera body, rotate the lens counterclockwise (clockwise for the Nikon mount) until it stops and separates the lens from the body.
  • Attach the rear lens cap.


Please note: It can be difficult to achieve optimum focus using the unaided eye when focusing an extreme wide-angle lens such as a 10mm. Check your camera’s instruction  book for manual focusing methods and focusing aids including Focus Confirmation and focus Magnification.

  • Set the Focus Mode of your camera to “MF” (Manual Focus). Adjust the focus by rotating the focusing ring on the lens until the focus confirmation indicator in your viewfinder confirms focus or the subject looks the sharpest.
  • Another focusing option is to use the magnifying feature of “Live View”. Utilizing the highest magnification available, adjust the focus by rotating the focusing ring until the image on your LCD screen looks the sharpest.
