Dear Mr Lee,
The long waiting period for Otus occurred because of the huge amount of back orders we received as we announced it to public and it was not available yet.
This is the reason we are now behind the process but we are optimistic we can deliver all orders before July.
All our lenses are partly handmade, some mechanical parts are machine manufactured, as with all our other SLR lenses.
