Canon is projecting selling 27% more DSLR cameras this year, to the tune of 9.2 million units. They’re also aiming for a 17% increase in compact camera sales, up to 22 million units.
With DSLR sales growth, lens sales should take a similar path upwards.

“… we will further differentiate and enhance our lineup by launching new cameras offering the image qualities that approaches SLR cameras; furthering the improvement in design and qualities, and by incorporating features such as network, connectivity capabilities.”
