Sony DXC 1200P Trinicon TV Camera - Telephoto Lens

This is the telephoto lens used with the Sony DXC 1200P Trinicon TV Camera.
The lens is actually a Canon lens. The label says :
Canon TV Zoom Lens.
V6 x 18MS 18 - 108mm 1:25
Serial number stamped on the aluminium labels is 2692. Made In Japan.
Industrial collaboration among Japanese companies is healthy in those days. Interesting enough, Sony video equipment nowadays tends to sport Carl Zeiss lens.
The camera man zoom in or out by pushing a rod from the operator end of the camera. Turning the rod focus the camera. The rod can be seen in the pictures of the complete camera posted earlier.
