90,000,000 lenses
Canon have just announced their 90 million lens landmark.
Here's also the latest photo of the entire lineup, including 200-400L as well as the cine lenses.

From usa.canon.com:

MELVILLE, N.Y., May 29, 2013 Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced its parent company, Canon Inc., has reached a new lens-manufacturing milestone with the production of its 90-millionth EF-series interchangeable lens for EOS cameras. Canon turned out its 90-millionth lens, an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM (released in September 2012), on May 23, 2013.

The production of interchangeable EF lenses for Canon EOS-series AF (autofocus) single-lens reflex film cameras began in 1987 at the Company's Utsunomiya Plant. Since that time, supported by a wide range of users, demand has steadily increased and production has expanded. Today, Canon produces EF lenses at four of the Company's manufacturing bases, including Canon Inc., Taiwan; Canon Opto (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.; and Oita Canon Inc. in southern Japan.

EF lens production surpassed the 10-million-unit mark in 1995, doubled to 20 million lenses in 2001, and went on to reach 30 million units in 2006 and 40 million units in 2008. Afterward, due to the rapid spread of EOS digital SLR cameras, production of EF lenses gained further momentum, crossing the 50-million-unit threshold in 2009, reaching 60 million units in January 2011, and hitting the 70-million-unit mark in October of the same year. In August 2012, lens production reached 80 million units and now, a little over nine months later, the company commemorates its latest manufacturing milestone of 90 million lenses.

Canon's proprietary EF lenses, launched in March 1987 along with the EOS SLR camera system, have continued to evolve since their introduction, leading the industry through the incorporation of a wide range of innovative technologies, including the Ultrasonic Motor (USM), Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, a multi-layered diffractive optical (DO) element, and Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) anti-reflection technology.

With the introduction in May this year of the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x, super-telephoto zoom lens with a built-in 1.4x extender that makes possible a 200-560 mm focal length range, along with EF Cinema Lenses for digital cinematography, Canon's extensive EF lens-series lineup now comprises a total of 84 models.

Canon will continue refining its diverse imaging technologies based on its core optical technologies, striving to produce exceptional and reliable lenses and cameras that cater to the varying needs of photographers-from first-time users to advanced amateurs and professionals-while contributing to expanding the photographic and video imaging culture.

Good one Mitesh. I was going to say 45,000,000 have passed through Petals hands.

It's a good thing Peter didn't include the discontinued lenses he has in his picture as the image would not be viewable as they have not yet built an affordable display that could handle that size of image. The only display that can handle showing Peter's entire collection is billboard size.

Are those your backup lenses?

C'mon, Peter, show us your entire lens collection already.

Thanks Peter!

That's quite an amazing accomplishment! No company has ever had a line-up of lenses like this.

I wish someone would post this photo on both the Nikon and Alt boards.

They use a view camera, not sure which lens or digital back.

Wouldn't that be a fun shot to stage, especially if they left you the 'samples'

Congrats to Canon, that is just spectacular!

I'm completely confused now, that can't be Peter's glass collection, there are no DUPLICATES

Nice Backup collection Peter.

Care to show the rest of your collection?

I thought that was a shot of your walk-around bag contents, BH

Let's see, I'm not lusting after any cine lenses, so that eliminates nine. I don't have a use for EF-S lenses; are any of those hiding in there? I don't want a 28-135 - or has that been discontinued? Now pull out the ones I already own.

Rats, that still leaves a huge pile of lenses that I have to have! And they include the most expensive ones!

I just purchased my first EF lens, which should be delivered today. I guess I contributed to the 90 million.

I still can't believe Canon made the 40 STM smaller than the 1.4 TC and still got good optics out of it.

Also, I love the sexy, smooth look of those EF-M lenses...will that ever trickle over to regular EF lenses? I'd love to see a brand new EF 135mm f/1.8L IS with that finish (and weather sealing while we're at it).

I can see that Peter's posting of the photo of this half of his lens collection is having an adverse impact upon the collective wisdom of this group. Many of you are lusting after these lenses. Not only would G Dan Mitchell disapprove, but after spending all of your cash on these lenses, the only thing you'll be able to afford to eat is

I believe he took it with his 1200mm f/5.6, hence the compression.
