*1: The lens cannot be used with a filter since focusing is interrupted by an attached filter touching the front of the lens. Also, filter may be damaged or the lens malfunction may result.

*2: Attach a filter to the front of the lens before attaching Macrolite Adapter (p.16) to the front part of the filter. If attachment threads are not provided on the front rim of the filter, the flash unit cannot be attached since Macrolite Adapter cannot be attached. Note that if the flash unit is attached after a filter and Macrolite Adapter are attached to the front of the lens, the periphery of the photo may look darker.
