just pointing out to the forum rules:

https://photography-on-the.net …p?p=10566630#po​st10566630

specially section "4. (The "don't be a jerk" language), "

9. If you know an answer to a question either answer it or say nothing. Giving newbies blunt answers like "search the forum" is not allowed - please use the typing effort to giving the answer instead. Or just give the link to that post you wished the newbie should have searched for. Respect newbies - you were a newbie once..

Just pointing out that someone who joined the forum 12 months ago isn't exactly a "Noob" and with over 150 posts, it could be expected that they would have some idea of how to use the forum, especially when there are umpteen threads on the various 70-200 lenses.
They're not hard to miss.

As Yoges pointed out, doing a search can turn up some useful information.

Why... do you have an expensive ass lens.. and not even know what its functions are...

No manual? What did you just pick it up on the street? I'm thinking anyone with the dough to buy this knows exactly what they are buying.

lens envy right here.

whether the this statement was warranted or not, I definitely felt the identical emotion! :cry:

I really don't get why you try to be a smartass everywhere lol

Seemed like a perfectly legitimate answer to me... then again, I'm probably also a smartass

Even without the manual, I think the focus limit button is pretty self explanatory. The IS mode can't really be worked out from the lens alone though.

That's where google comes in. "image stabilizer mode 1 2" pretty much gets you everything you'll ever need to know--and more

I'm appalled by what I'm reading here. Most of you have been around long enough to know better.

The new ones don't come with a paper manual. You get a cd. Not sure what's on it cause I've not looked at mine either.

Not a universal truth. I just got my 70-200 f2.8 IS II and it has a paper manual.

MD Harper - also be aware that you should not use the IS function while the lens is being used on a tripod. Monopod is OK with IS.

bought it used #1 and unless someone had a lens with functions simliar to this how would they know...Why...comment if you have nothing useful to say.

This is the first time that I've met so many RUDE people here.

On the flipside thanks to the many helpful ones.

Well although you bought it new, it was probably manufactured and packaged before the "new" ones that come with a CD.
