Rob Galbraith: Canon, Nikon announce production milestones
Nikon has announced that earlier this month, the total number of Nikkor interchangeable lenses produced has reached 65 million, only about seven months after hitting the 60-million mark in March 2011. Canon projects that later this month, total production of Canon EF lenses will surpass 70 million, while the company has built 50 million EOS film and digital cameras as of September 2011. For both companies, the pace of production has accelerated dramatically in the digital era.
