130M EOS Lenses and 90M EOS Bodies Manufactured

According to Canon, this month it has reached the next 10 million milestone for both EOS lenses and EOS bodies manufactured, making a total of 130 million EOS lenses and 90 million EOS bodies. Canon has been kind enough to offer this information for every 10 million lenses and bodies since the EOS series was founded in 1987, which makes it possible to make a consistent production plot.

Canon EOS Cameras and Lenses manufactured since the birth of the EOS system in 1987

The same data as numbers:

EOS lenses:
   0M units   3/1987
  10M units   8/1995, took 101 months
  20M units   2/2001, took   66 months
  30M units   1/2006, took   59 months
  40M units   4/2008, took   27 months
  50M units   1/2010, took   21 months
  60M units   2/2011, took   13 months
  70M units 10/2011, took     8 months
  80M units   8/2012, took   10 months
  90M units   5/2013, took     9 months
100M units   4/2014, took   11 months
110M units   7/2015, took   15 months
120M units   9/2016, took   14 months
130M units 10/2017, took   13 months

EOS bodies:
 0M units   3/1987
10M units  7/1997, took 124 months
20M units  7/2003, took   72 months
30M units 12/2007, took   53 months
40M units  4/2010, took   28 months
50M units 10/2011, took   18 months
60M units 10/2012, took   12 months
70M units   2/2014, took   16 months
80M units 11/2015, took   21 months
90M units 10/2017, took   23 months

So, what does this tell us about the current business with Canon? To me it says then even if lens and body sales are down from the ludicruous period of 2011-2014, they have been on a consistent and still high level for the last three years.

Hope you find this (almost annual) report interesting!
