The way lenses are made don't stop to amaze me. I've once visited Shott in Mainz/Germany and I remember their work around telescope lenses, just impressive. Excellent video thanks very much for sharing... The victory of man over material !
Whatever

Was linked to this last night, very nice to see about all those different types of glasses, and of course what is inside... uhh, Chad's lens. Big grin

Wonder if the bigger sister; 600 f/4L IS has similar procedures.

Thanks Vice!! Big grin

. . . .But you'd think with all that inspection that you'd get a clean lens! Unfortunately my 500/4 arrived with a load of dirt on one of the inside lenses.  banghead  It's now back with Canon, hopefully it will arrive back clean in the next few weeks.

Take care
