However, I like the fact this was not one of those 3D print a case, insert bit's that do all the work. Well beyond film.
What is surprising here is that the object has the internal clarity, so that all it needs is a surface polish. I imagine it must be relatively free of voids and inclusions.
The actual 3D printing project is pretty interesting, though.

The Focal Camera is an open-source modular camera prototyping system.
By offering these designs free for non-commercial use by anyone we strive to improve the ability of making handmade cameras for everyone. It allows for complex cameras that might seem daunting at first, such as SLRs, stereo or panoramic cameras and countless others, including even custom lens design.
Also, he may be able to spin it on a surface, like what is done for coating silicon in order to spread the resin evenly across the surface.
It would be very easy to make a lens mount for commercial glass if lens had a larger FFD than the SLO, which is ~41mm.
Man 3D prints computer
"Ok, first I 3D printed this case. Now we install the MSI motherboard, Intel processor, G.Skill RAM, and other components. Viola, a 3D printed computer!"
How much would something like this cost to print in one of those printing sites?
You might be able to find someone with a Formlabs printer on 3D Hubs, but they would have to follow this guide to achieve the result. Resin is not cheap either. Overall cost including man-hours of manual testing might cost over $300 if you really wanted it!
