I also find this confusing, but read somewhere (trying to find the source) that 80-90% of DSLR owners (that would be Rebels & their Nikon ilk) never remove their kit lens. Alan's math makes sense in that regard, plus, not every SLR or DSLR owner throws away their body after two years. People have bought my old bodies, and I bet many of them still own them.
Because, there are survey results 4-5% of customers who bought the kit lens is that it does not use only kit lens.
Would indeed be interesting to see an accurate translation of this. Do 5% never buy another lens? If so that is an amazing stst
I could believe that easily 4-5% never buy another lens. I know people with DSLRs that bought a kit and are just fine with their kit zoom. They take pictures only once in a while such as on a trip or at some big event. It just depends on how much they get into photography.
wouldn't the is does NOT only use the kit lens, imply the opposite though?
yeah I guess that could be
Nope you were right the first time it does imply the opposite, 95% do buy an additional lens. Doubt that would include second hand but may include third party. Maybe they are all 50 1.8s and 40 stm's
It's an interesting little snippet, probably nothing more than some simplistic maths division by marketing but if it is a properly researched stat it is very impressive
