Lens and camera production milestones
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.
