Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L USM instruction manual?
Jan 17, 2013

Greetings, forum.   I've been lucky enough to pick up a second hand EF 35mm f/1.4L.   It came with no documentation.   Now, I know that it's not exactly overwhelmed with complex features, but I'd be interested to see a copy of any leaflet or booklet which ships with the lens to make sure I'm not missing anything.

For example, I believe that even with the lens switched to 'AF', it's OK to just grab the focussing ring and manually focus it.   I'd like  to check that this really is true, and indeed what purpose it serves, because as soon as you depress the shutter button again, the lens just focuses back to where it was before you adjusted it.

So, can anyone point me in the direction of such a document?   Will post some pics from the lens once my competence with it improves.

Thanks all - and thanks for all the inspiring pictures and informative threads.
