Title: Gravitational Lensing with CFHTLenS: Results and Lessons Learned


The CFHTLenS team has been working full time in the past 3 and half years on the analysis of the 150 sq.deg. of the Canada France Telescope Legacy Survey (CFHTLS). Our main goal was gravitational lensing science, and most of the practical work focussed on measuring the galaxy shapes and photometric redshifts with the best possible precision. In my talk I will present some of the science results, most of them are either accepted or under review. I will highlight some of the lessons learned from this project that will be useful for future lensing surveys. Our upcoming data release (november 1st 2012) will give full access to all our data products through the Canadian Astronomy Data Center (CADC).
