Canon has announced that it has built its 100 millionth EF-series lens for the Canon EOS camera series. Canon began making the interchangeable EF lenses for the EOS-series AF single-lens reflex cameras in 1987 in its Japanese factories. In May of 2013, the production of EF lenses passed the 90 million mark. About a year later, the company is celebrating its 100 millionth lens.

Canon says that the series has been responsible for a number of world first technologies and features over the years. That includes things like an Ultrasonic Motor, Image Stabilizer, and multi-layered diffractive optical elements. Canon was the top in global market share on the interchangeable lens camera marker from 2003 through 2013.
