  • Lens experts can hear faults
  • Lens polishing tools are made with diamonds
  • Aspherical lenses are made by melting glass
  • Sci-fi robots roam the factory
  • Lens polishing machines self-correct
  • Lens measurements are incredibly precise
  • The hardest lens to make is…
  • The innovation never ends
  • Canon lenses could (probably) cover half the world
