I think it decided it was outnumbered by a superior force, in both size and number. It surrendered on the spot.

Wow really cool stuff one because there is a crap load of stuff jammed in there and the other i used to own a 17-85 myself so it's just cool knowing now what goes inside one of these.

I'd like to see a 70-200 2.8 IS next!

Here's the 70-200 IS! (not mine)

OP: Very cool! It is very interesting to see the inside of that lens.

great thread (sorry about the lens though)

On the topic of pen holders, I found this at Canon Australia's Melbourne Office:

Better yet, send it to Canon and claim "I was just taking a few architectural shots when I ended up with THIS!"

Perhaps this was just a case of "Aperture Envy" where the lens felt inadequate compared to the aperture capabilities of the building..??

Nice job documenting the dissection... and you got a cool pencil holder to boot!

I am very surprised I have not seen images of this building on photography sites before.
somewhere on that design team there is a serious photographer.

I guess that answers the question of why Canon doesn't offer do-it-yourself lens kits.

did you try banging it with a hammer before you took it apart? That's what I always do, works a lot of the time

Cool, thanks for sharing. I used to own a 17-85 and it is nice to know what's inside it. Thanks.
