I was fascinated by this video because I own one of these lenses, but I think it’s worth sharing with you guys as well. This lens is a huge optical achievement from Canon and it puts a smile on my face every time I use it. The built-in 1.4x extender is still a unique feature in the photo world, and it makes this lens design extremely complex. Just look how many pieces there are in this thing!
