The home of the L-series: Inside Canon’s Utsunomiya lens factory

With decades’ of experience, Master Craftsmen (or ‘Takumi’) can tell when to apply more or less pressure by feel alone. Some processes, like this one, are considered so critical that they must be performed by hand.

It typically takes between 25-30 years before a lens polishing technician attains the status of ‘Meister’, and their experience is essential to the production line.

(video) Jon and Vangelis – He Is Sailing – 1983 – with lyrics

This is a bit new agey, the lyrics and these graphics here, but I’ve always liked this song — used to listen to it on my he-man stereo rig.

It should be “His Kingdom come,” not “our true kingdom come,” etc., doctrinally. But still a great song!!!
