Canon - Disassembling a Canon 35/1.4 L mkii

Talk Equipment - www.talkphotography.co.uk
Came across this article on the diss assembly of the new 35L mkii. It really is impressive stuff from Canon. From the construction's point of view, if one places value on construction and what you get for £1800. It seems the price tag is not just a Canon brand tax or all inflation or just charging more for new stuff. There are some serious engineering going on inside.

To quote a few lines from the article.

The mechanical construction is beyond impressive. This lens is massively over-engineered compared to any other prime we’ve ever disassembled. It’s built like a tank where it counts; on the inside.Click to expand...

We take apart A LOT of lenses (we passed 20,000 in-house repairs some time ago) and this is the most impressively built prime I’ve seen. This is an engineer’s lens.Click to expand...

If I had to summarize the mechanical design of this lens, I would say simply that no expense was spared, no corner was cut.

Sometimes things are expensive because they’re worth it. Sometimes they’re heavy because they’re so solidly constructed. This is one of those times.Click to expand...
