Dear Moderator,

May I have permission to post scanned images of the Canon 14x zoom lens manual?

It is my understanding that the manual is not available on-line from Canon.

I don't know if you got the manual yet. But for anyone interested in the future, Lorinda is correct it is a small sheet and in many languages. It is however available online from canon:


Then just click on top where it says Product/ Software Manuals. All of the manuals are available there, it will pop up a new window with all the PDF's.

I've been to that page on Canon's website; it has PDFs for the 16x and 3x zoom lenses, but *not* the 14x manual zoom lens. I have not been able to find any 14x documentation on Canon's website, as if the product never existed! When I called Canon, they acknowledged removing support, promised to follow-up with somebody "to order a manual", but they never contacted me...

Thanks to Dan, I now have scans of the original. I'm going to post this stuff on my website so others in my situation won't have to go through the same ordeal...

Dear Trenton,

I hope you have everything you need.

Instructions Available Now-- Thanks!
Dan, thanks again! Using your scans, I created PDF and Microsoft Word versions of the instructions. I posted everything on my website for future reference:


Thanks again!

Canon Maual 14x focus lock screws
Hi all just bought a second hand 14x Canon lens and I was wondering any one know where I can buy a replacement locking nut for the focus ring as it is missing.
cheers in advance

Andy, I bought my lens into an old Ace hardware in Atlanta and the guy there found a fit for only 25 cents. Bob

Cheers Bob ended up buying the official one for around $14.00! only to find I had to glue it in because when the old one had been lost had screwed the thread it lasted all of 24 Hours :-(
Looks like I\'ll have a search in the garage for one that will fit in the thread and hopefully stay there.
