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

Shingo Hayakawa: "It launched in 1991, the 75-300mm F4-5.6 USM, was the first lens I worked on and also the very first lens in that series. At the time, we actually launched the product at a lower price than the third party manufacturers, which was big news. The version "III" of that lens is still on the market."

Shingo Hayakawa is the Deputy Group Executive of Image Communication and Products Operations at Canon's Utsunomiya lens factory.
