The WFC has been designed at HIA (Victoria, Canada). The lenses have been fabricated by SAGEM/REOSC, which also built the mechanical structure of the WFC and coated the lenses.
In this picture looking up through the lenses, the WFC is seen from
the floor just before the lift of the upper end to the telescope. A succession
of lenses and baffling rings ultimately extends to the mosaic of MegaCam.
