How Camera Lenses Are made

I had no idea how much work goes into manufacturing camera lenses. I imagined that each lens was cut completely by machines and camera lenses were turned out by the hundreds everyday.

This video shows the extensive and laborious steps that go into making a video camera lens but the same exact process is used to make Canon and Nikon Camera Lenses.
