The EOS System 30th Anniversary

Canon's EOS System made its debut in March 1987 with the launch of the EOS 650 single-lens reflex (SLR) camera and EF lenses.
Since its debut in 1987, the EOS System has consistently aimed to expand the boundaries of photographic expression, and with Canon's optical technology at its core, the Company continues to refine its imaging technology and strengthen and expand the EOS System.
