Canon 90 Million EF Lenses

Canon rolled its 90 millionth lens off the production line last week on May 23, 2013 - with the very popular EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM be the lucky lady. This big milestone comes less than 10 months after Canon produced its 80 millionth lens in August 2012. Canon hit the 60 million and…

and half of the junk lying around are the FD lens that Canon decided to screw over their
customers when they went digital and changed their lens mount for digital cameras ?

Canon is way over priced for Stuff !

People are finding out that you can't sit on your name and not innovate anything
than turn around and charge top dollar for mediocore equipment.

Don't believe that CANON is anymore expensive OR over priced than NIKON! When you compare camera models with very close feature lists between the two manufacturers, the NIKON historically has always been MORE expensive, going back to the NIKON F era of the 1960s, 1970s.

What I'd like to see CANON do is to introduce a companion lens to the newly-available 200-400/4 L, WITHOUT all the extra hardware, electronics, etc. for "smooth" autofocusing in movie mode. As an SLR still-capture user (digital & film), I couldn't care less about all the extra features for the movie mode. And, IF they could reduce the price by several thousand dollars, then that would make a GREAT addition to their lineup of EOS lenses. As it is now, I can't see investing almost $12,000 for such an item. To me it would be akin to their offering FOUR different variations of the 70-200 lens, two with "IS", two without, two @ f2.8, two @ f4.0!

I have never used any of my dSLR bodies in movie-capture mode, and have no intention of ever doing so.....

Well said Karl,
It's about time Canon and the like listened to folk such as us.
Likewise I've never used the video mode on my 5DM2 and never will! I am a stills photographer if I want video I use my video camera! I'm pissed about paying extra monies for something that shouldn't be on a stills camera, if Canon want to pander to the 'techies' release a camera Mkwhatever V (video), leave us with a stills camera and adjust the price accordingly! Rant over!
