CANON CELEBRATES PRODUCTION OF 80 MILLION EF LENSES

By Dan Carr | August 21, 2012

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., August 21, 2012 - Canon Inc. today announced the achievement of a new EF lens-manufacturing milestone with the production of the company's 80-millionth EF lens on August 3, 2012. Production of EF lenses surpassed the 10-million mark in 1995, doubling to 20 million units in 2001. After reaching the 30 million unit milestone in 2006, Canon celebrated the production of its 40-millionth lens in 2008. Owing to the rapid spread of the EOS Digital series of SLR cameras, production for Canon's EF lenses then gained momentum to reach the 50 million unit milestone in 2009, followed by the 60 million mark in January 2011 and the 70 million mark in October of the same year. Now, just over nine months later, the EF lens series has reached the 80 million mark on August 3, 2012, adding a distinguished achievement to the 25th anniversary of the launch of Canon's EOS system.{C} Read More

Nikon Announces Development Of 800mm Lens

In development, an f5.6 800mm super telephoto.

By Dan Carr | July 12, 2012

Nikon have today announced that they are developing a new 800mm f5.6 VR lens. As has become popular recently with Canon, Nikon are calling this a development announcement which merely means that they confirm it's going to come at some point but detailed specifications, shipping dates and pricing will follow at a later date. Canon have had an 800mm lens for a few years and as they are also now making a 200-400 to match up against Nikon's 200-400 , it makes sense for Nikon to make an 800mm now as well. Expect the price to be well over $12,000 whenever it arrives. Read More
