Lenses and Accessories

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!
