Behind the scenes of how a Canon 500mm lens is made

A reader emailed me this video a while back and I finally got around to watching it. If you enjoy watching how things are made you will really appreciate the amount of effort that goes into making pro level lenses. I have never thought of my lenses coming ultimately from a bunch of powder!

Not just informative Matt, but badass! It makes me feel proud about the product I'm holding in my hand...I have a prejudice towards well crafted products :)
