Canon EF 90

Canon is celebrating the production of its 90 millionth EF series interchangeable lens.

This new milestone follows just over nine months since Canon announced the production of the 80-millionth lens in August 2012.

Production of Canon’s signature interchangeable EF lens series began in 1987 at the Utsunomiya Plant, when the series was first introduced together with the EOS SLR camera system. Since then, the global demand for Canon’s EOS products and lenses has continued to gather pace and in 2011 there was only nine months between the increase from 60 to 70 million units manufactured.

In May of this year, Canon announced the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x, a super telephoto zoom lens which is equipped with a 1.4x internal extender and offers a wide, 200-560 mm zoom range. As a result, Canon’s current EF lens line-up comprises of 80 models including the EF Cinema Lens series for use in cinema and TV production.

I wonder how much all those lenses in the photo are worth if you added their RRP together.

Amazing, if each one weighs a kilogram on average that's 10,000 tonnes of lenses, or the weight of 125,000 versions of me.

Ten Million lenses - more that one for every person living in London.

Of course the Nifty Fifty f1.8 is an EF lens, so they are not all super expensive either.
