[Lens] 80 years Nikkor lenses

Being an ex-optician (long long time ago ) I still enjoy seeing this craftsmanship.

I think we sometimes forget what it takes to make great optics,
and how good the optics are these days.

This is a very similar video released years ago by Canon.

It's just funny, we whine and fight and go at it over manufacturers, when the procedures between the two are nearly identical. (Including manufacturing equipment). Makes it almost laughable.

The Canon one isn't as pretty, and doesn't have good sound... But it's more informative for those wondering what's going on at each step.

I totally agree !

I think it is important to appreciate the great work of all manufacturers of lenses.

I think it is very easy to be very critical about lenses and 'over-analyze' stuff but IMHO the optics have come a long way ..
and today I believe that there are no really bad lenses anymore. Even the 'kit lenses' today do a really great job.

And I am happy that this technology enables me to take great pictures. And that is of course what it's all about.

I've seen a video of how Zeiss lenses are made, the process is very interesting.
