Notes on use

· Avoid keeping the lens in a very humid place
for a long period of time to prevent mold.
· Avoid putting the camera on the desk with the
tele conversion lens or wide conversion lens

· Though peripheral resolution has been greatly
improved compared with other Sony conver-
sion lenses up to now, the peripheral perfor-
mance is slightly lower than that of the center.
· During photography using the tele conversion
lens, the corners of the screen may be eclipsed
(shadow) at a wide-angle (W) position. If this
happens, move the zoom ratio towards the
telephoto (T) position and select a position
where there is no shadow.
· During photography using the wide conver-
sion lens, the image is sometimes out-of-focus
at the telephoto (T) position. If this happens,
move the zoom ratio towards a wide-angle
(W) position and select a position where the
image is in-focus.
· The image may sometimes appear out of focus
on some cameras with auto focus function.
Adjust the focus manually in such cases.
· When removing the MC protector from the
tele conversion lens or wide conversion lens,
hold a soft cloth against the MC protector, and
gently loosen it. Failure to do so might result
in unexpeted injury.
