Disassembly of a Zoom Lens

When fredmiranda.com forum user sbv20 found himself with a broken Canon 17-85 mm zoom lens after the aperture became stuck he decided to have a little bit of fun: he took it apart!

And thankfully, he documented his disassembly of the zoom lens for all of us to see: Link - via Gizmodo

Not THAT is neato! I'm amazed at how little glass is actually involved in one of those things. I guess he didn't actually pry apart all the lens elements.

Wow. That's quite fascinating. I've been thinking of getting a better lens for my camera. Neat to see that so many pieces exist in that thing.
