    Where can you get instruction manuals for your lenses?

    I would like to get one for my
    1. Prime EF 50mm 1.8 II
    2. EF 70-210mm f/4
    3. Digital High Definition 0.5x Wide Angle Lens with Macro
    If you know where I can download it that would be great as well

    I would also like to know where to get some good used lens cases for specific lenses? Is it best to keep your lenses in the hard barrel lens cases or would a good large camera bag work better?

    I have the instruction manuals for any of the lenses that I bought new...and really, there isn't much info in them. It's maybe 10 or 20 pages...and that includes about 7 different languages, cover, index etc.

    I wouldn't worry about manuals for the lenses. The camera's manual, on the other hand, is gold.

    I don't know that there are hard cases specifically for those lenses. My local camera stores have bins full of old lens cases...but most or all of them are too small for these new, auto focus lenses.

    You could look at more generic, soft but padded lens bags. Lowepro makes some, as do other companies.

    However, I would recommend a bigger camera bag, where you could keep all of your stuff together.
