What was the first lens design you worked on at Canon?

Masato Okada: "It would go back many years, maybe you weren’t even born yet (Editor's note: I was not), but the first lens I worked on was the FD 150-600mm F5.6L. It was one of those lenses where it was on a box and you actually had a one-touch action to do the zoom and one-touch action to do the focus. That was a big revelation."

Masato Okada is the Deputy Chief Executive of Image Communication and Products Operations at Canon's Utsunomiya lens factory.
