Here's How Fuji Makes Their Lenses

We've seen how complicated the internals are for Canon and Nikon lenses, and now Fujifilm has released a video showing just what it takes to craft the XF series lenses for their mirrorless cameras:

Again, I personally could watch hours of this stuff, but even lenses you think are kind of cheap are not easy to make. It takes many hours and quite a few skilled workers to bring these lenses to life.

One thing I always find fascinating about these videos it the equipment. It's not just in lens making but, the giant equipment used to make these are unique. I assume there are barely any made in the world, and it's used to help mass produce something else. Maybe it's just me, but it's fascinating to think of a product that is only created a handful of times.
