Award Presentation
To DICK CAVDEK, STEVE HAMERSKI and OTTO NEMENZ INTERNATIONAL for the opto-mechanical design and development of the Canon/Nemenz Zoom Lens Incorporated .

This Canon 150-600mm lens was originally designed for use in still photography as a variable prime lens, which can change focus with a change in focal length. This design adaptation converts the lens into a true zoom lens which can hold focus throughout the zoom range.
