    Hi All,

    Having just taken delivery of this new expensive lens, most unusually I read the user instructions.
    Now they state: "Do not carry the unit when it is still attached to
    the camera body"
    also Inside a vehicle.
    If these were followed i do not understant how one could ever use the lens to take photos.
    If i go to China wow what about the humidity and i guess fireworks are out as there will be fire present. Hope the plane does not vibrate on take off.
    And this is a dustproof sealed lens.
    Is something lost in translation!!

    Comments welcome please.

    Cheers,
    Arnold

    I think they might mean don't hold by the lens when it is attached to the camera rather than holding the camera - presumably because you might strain the lens to camera interface - just a guess but that would make sense perhaps ?
    I tend to hold my 14 - 140 lens by the barrel when it is attached to my camera

    Taking photos and driving is just as bad as texting and driving. Like chewing bubble gum and taking names.... wait....

    The panasonic 100-300 manual says the same, and i thought "what?". I guess avoid excessive pressure on the lens mount, but you have to carry it.
