Canon is celebrating the production of 80 million EF lenses.

This new milestone comes just over nine months after announcing the production of the 70-millionth lens in October 2011 and coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Canon EOS System.

Production of Canon’s world-renowned EF lens series first began in March 1987 alongside the introduction of Canon’s first EOS SLR camera system at the company’s Utsunomiya plant. Over the past 25 years the range has continued to pioneer technical advancement in the industry through the introduction of a series of innovative technologies, including the world’s first * Ultrasonic Motor-powered lens (USM) and Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, as well as a multi-layered diffractive optical (DO) element, and Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) anti-reflection technology.

Stephen Marshall, Product Marketing Director for consumer imaging in Canon Europe, said: "Since the first ever EF lens was produced in 1987, we’ve been dedicated to providing the best possible performance to users of all levels."
