You do realize that those with an xD or xxD body and more than 1-2 lenses are a minuscule fraction of the Canon dSLR user base, right?    ::)

Out of interest, is there anywhere that shows total numbers of each camera sold ?

I daresay the Rebels would be rocking those numbers quite hard...

Yes, I do. What I meant was that it is kinda silly for Canon to say they're the greatest because they built 50 million 18-55mm kit lenses.

(And maybe if Canon made more EF-S primes, xxxD users will perhaps actually buy a second/third lens. What an untapped market?)

You are distorting the numbers.  The Canon figures are for EF (Electrically focused) lenses, and do not include3 manual focus lenses.
What are the Nikon figures for their electrically focused lenses?  Far smaller.

I did NOT conjure the numbers. Just google 'Canon lens milestone million' and 'Nikon lens milestone million'. I merely REPORT the manufacturers' claims.

If you do not believe the figures, please take that up with the manufacturers.

You are showing out how easy it is for a person to be fooled by numbers. .  Just because you found as number on the internet does not make it a valid comparison.
 
Note the title of the post   
 
It is for EF electrically focused lenses, and not for every lens that Canon has made.  The number you reported for Nikon was for every lens they have made.

So, if that ratio holds, 50 million of those 90 million lenses are most likely the variants of the EF-S 18-55mm kit lens.

That is nothing to be proud of.  :-\

Wonder how many people have only 1 lens and 1body?   We have *only* 5 bodies and 16 lenses (counting TCs but not extension tubes).   Interesting research project for someone at Canon.   Just look at the points in takes to qualify for each level of CPS - rather low in my opinion

Are we going to create pool when the 100 millionth lens will be made?
