canon L lens flying in space
May 26, 2012

video capture from international space station.

The space station along with the L lens orbits Earth about every 90 minutes, so that means in a 24 hour day, they orbit Earth approximately 16 times. Astronauts on board see 15 or 16 sunrises and sunsets each day. In order for the L lens to stay in orbit, it has to travel at seven kilometers per second, which the equivalent in miles per hour, is around 15,500 miles per hour. Now that is Canon's fastest lens!!
