In 1932, Nippon Kogaku K.K. registered the NIKKOR trademark, shortly shipping the Aero-Nikkor aerial photographic lenses in 1933. Since then, Nippon Kogaku K.K. has become Nikon, but the lenses still say Nikkor written across them. In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the lens brand, Nikon has released an incredible video showing the process of how a lens is crafted, from raw materials on up.
