Canon has produced 140 million EF lenses

On December 19, 2018, Canon reached a new production milestone of 140 million EF lenses*, reinforcing its position as the world's highest-volume manufacturer of interchangeable lenses. True to the development concept of the EOS Series established in 1987.

*Including EF-S, EF-M, RF lenses and EF Cinema lenses

Seeming that milestone was 57 days ago it is safe to assume that the 140 million EF lenses could solely be attributed to lenses related to the EF mount rather than RF lenses.

That’s ikely about 7 million a year!

The thing about most lenses is that they can last decades of regular use. So they turn out to be very economical.

The most expensive lenses from Canon hold close to their numerical original $ value over the years, except, every 7 years or so, the value of a $ may have halved!

Still few things we own hold value so well!
