    When I was a kid I got caught looking at at my dad's Playboy magazines. I got a knuckle to the head for looking at boobs.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Well, I made it purt near through the 6th grade, you know. Hard to confuse me with questions about botany.

    "I'm learning in school about plants."
    "Botany?"
    "No, I don't have any money."

    And what does a botanist make love on?

    Answer: a monocot.

    So figure the maximum time it could take-- then doublet.

    Bah. It's just a lens; it was originally assembled by normal human beings, so it stands to reason that one can repair it competently.
    Now, if he'd been working on a truly special lens - like a Goerz Dagor - it really would take cojones (note sp.) And talent, and incredible skill, and superhuman and -natural powers, because these lenses are special. The person who designed them is special, the men who made them were special, and the photographers who use them are special, because they use them. And of course the photographs made with them are most special of all. Even the subjects which are photographed become special.

    Sorry, English is not my first language :P But you are right, designed and built by humans, although in a specialized shop.
