The values for equivalent 35mm-format focal length and angle of view are based on Digital Single Lens Reflex Cameras equipped with an APS-C sized image sensor.
*
2
Minimum focus is the shortest distance from the image sensor to the subject.
• This lens is equipped with a distance encoder. The distance encoder allows more accurate measurement (ADI) by using a flash for ADI.
• Depending on the lens mechanism, the focal length may change with any change of the shooting distance. The focal length assumes the lens is focused at infinity.

 Attaching/detaching the lens
To attach the lens (See illustration –.)
1
Remove the rear and front lens caps and the camera body cap.
• You can attach/detach the front lens cap in two ways, (1) and (2). When
you attach/detach the lens cap with the lens hood attached, use method (2).
2
Align the orange index on the lens barrel with the orange
index on the camera (mounting index), then insert the lens
into the camera mount and rotate it clockwise until it locks.
• Do not press the lens release button on the camera when mounting the lens.
• Do not mount the lens at an angle.
To remove the lens (See illustration –.)
While pressing and holding the lens release button on the
camera, rotate the lens counterclockwise until it stops, then
detach the lens.
 Attaching lens hood
It is recommended that you use a lens hood to reduce flare and ensure
maximum image quality.
DT 18-70mm F3.5-5.6:
Fit the hood into the mount on the end of the lens barrel and
rotate the hood clockwise until it clicks.
DT 11-18mm F4.5-5.6, DT 18-200mm F3.5-6.3:
Align the red lines on the lens hood and the lens. Turn the hood
clockwise until the red line on the lens meets the red dot on the
hood and it clicks into place.
• When using a built-in camera flash, make sure to remove the lens hood to avoid
blockage of the flash light.
• If a marking (red line, red dot, etc.) is provided, attach the lens hood properly.
Otherwise, the lens hood may interfere with the desired effect or may appear in
pictures.
• When storing, turn over the lens hood and place it onto the lens backwards.
 Zooming
Rotate the zooming ring to the desired focal length.
 Focusing
When using the auto focus, the camera focuses the lens automatically. When
focusing manually, set your camera to the manual focus and rotate the
focusing ring while looking through the viewfinder. The focus signal in the
viewfinder indicates the current degree of the focus.
• The focusing ring can be rotated slightly past the infinity to provide accurate
focusing under various operating temperatures. Do not rotate the focusing ring
all the way to the end when focusing manually, even at infinity. Look through
the viewfinder and set the focus precisely.
• For Lens model DT 18-200mm F3.5-6.3, the focusing ring rotates the opposite
way than the other DT Zoom lenses.
