Canon Camera Museum - How lenses are made

In another forum a person was nice enough to provide a link to the Canon Camera Museum.  At this URL, there is a small movie that describes the Material Process, Lens Machining, and Lens assembly processes.

They describe the entire process here

Its very interesting how they manufactured a 500mm F4 IS USM lens containing 13 groups and 17 elements.

I suspect other lens manufacturers do something similar.
