The High Price of Photo Gear

Here are two items I recently came across that blew my mind. The first one is clip from a Canadian TV program showing how camera lenses are made. I had no idea what an involved and painstaking process is required to make fine optics. I guess that explains why nice lenses cost so much.

And speaking of expensive lenses? How about one that costs $99,000 and weights 36 pounds. B&H in New York has one for sale. Here’s what the beast looks like. (Via kottke.)
