Canon’s $11,000 200-400mm f/4L lens is not something you take apart lightly. (In fact, the full official name is Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Lens with Internal 1.4x Extender, but we are trying to keep it short). But that is not to say that it can not be taken apart.

Canon’s youtube channel published such a lens being pilled apart piece by piece and to make it more interesting they do it with a stunning stop motion movie.

The description says it is made from “hundreds of precise mechanical and optical parts” but does not say how many hundreds. It just seems like a lot. Adn we get to see them all stripped from the lens

YouTube video
  • High performance L-series super-telephoto zoom with built-in 1.4x extender (280-560mm, f/5.6) makes it ideal for sports and wildlife photography
  • One fluorite and four UD lens elements provide excellent correction of chromatic aberration throughout the entire zoom range, delivering high-quality images with high resolution and contrast
  • Inner focusing, ring USM, a high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithms for fast and accurate autofocusing
  • Optical Image Stabilizer provides up to four shutter speed stops of correction.
  • Three image stabilization modes (standard, panning, and during exposure only) provide excellent results for a wide range of shooting situations

see if you can match the feature to the photo ;)
