The-Digital-Picture has written a cool little article about the 10 oldest Canon lenses currently in production.



  1. Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro Lens Buy – 1987
  2. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens Buy – 1990
  3. Canon EF 100mm f/2 USM Lens Buy – 1991
  4. Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8 Tilt-Shift Lens Buy – 1991
  5. Canon TS-E 90mm f/2.8 Tilt-Shift Lens Buy – 1991
  6. Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens Buy – 1992
  7. Canon EF 20mm f/2.8 USM Lens Buy – 1992
  8. Canon EF 400mm f/5.6 L USM Lens Buy – 1993
  9. Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Lens Buy – 1993
  10.  Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L USM Lens – 1995

I wouldn't expect a replacement for anything else on the list.
