Amateur Photographer - - 7days -

CANON has also reached the lat­est pro­duc­tion mile­stones in the 30-year his­tory of its EOS sys­tem. Since its in­tro­duc­tion in March 1987, the firm has now pro­duced no fewer than 90 mil­lion EOS cam­eras and 130 mil­lion EF lenses. In­deed over the past five years, it’s been man­u­fac­tur­ing al­most 10 mil­lion lenses per year, with the 120-mil­lion mark hav­ing been achieved in Septem­ber 2016. Its 90 mil­lionth cam­era to roll off the pro­duc­tion line was an EOS 5D Mark IV, while the 130 mil­lionth lens was an EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM.
