Instruction Manuals for Lenses and Accessories
Lenses don’t come with great instruction manuals. “Put lens on camera and press shutter release”. Usually Canon tries to take up ten pages to say that but essentially, that’s it. Of more interest are the booklets that discuss lines of lenses. They contain great summaries of what was available at the time of the publication. I have several of those here. And, yes, there are some manuals as well.
And , of course, there are all the other manuals for all the bits and pieces that go with the cameras. They too have great information in them. They are good reading and useful as well.
These are great publications. If you want to know Canon cameras, dig into them!
Single Focal Length Lenses
EF Lens Accessories
EF Lens Technology
These booklets are really just advertising for Canon Lenses but they are very pretty to look at and there is some information in them.
They were published by Canon as a hard cover book some years ago and I see copies available on E-Bay and Amazon. Or you can read them here. Enjoy!
