All Canon Lenses are interchangeable and feature a standard, screw-in lens mount,
which has been proved to be the most accurate and durable...and has the greatest
area of lens-to-camera contact of any type of camera connection.
To change your lens, place the Lens Cap over the top of the lens. Grip the lens
barrel at its base and apply gentle pressure until the lens is loosened. Continue turning
until the lens is completely unscrewed. Be sure that the camera (when loaded with film)
is in the shade. Be sure to cover the lens base with a Dust Cap as soon as possible.
To replace a lens, keep Lens Cap on the lens but remove Base Cap. Turn the lens
first counter-clockwise for half a turn to insure that the lens threads and the camera
mount flange do not cross. Next, turn clockwise until the lens is securely in place.
Do not force the lens any farther.
Always tighten a lens by its base not by the top. If the lens has a Lens Focusing
Lever, be sure this is in the locked (») position.
Note: When mounting or dismounting a lens
of 85 mm or greater focal length, be sure
to set it at the nearest footage setting to
protect the camera’s rangefinder mechanism.
