Using the Tripod Mount

Adjusting the Revolving Mount
You can loosen the orientation lock-knob on the tripod mount to allow it to rotate as needed to fit a particular camera model for switching between vertical and horizontal positions.

Use the following procedure to remove and attach the tripod mount.
Turn the locking knob counterclockwise until it becomes loose (about 3 turns), and pull the knob in the direction of the arrow to release the collar.
With the collar open, remove the tripod mount.
To install, while pulling the locking knob, bring the collar to the original position, and tighten the locking knob securely.
If the foot of the tripod mount overlaps the switch, loosen the orientation locking knob on the tripod mount to move the foot.
The tripod mount can be attached to or detached from the lens while the lens is attached to the camera.
