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.
I sincerely doubt it means 4-5% don't buy lens(es) beyond the kit. The lens + body sales milestones (100M lenses, 70M bodies) aren't consistent with that interpretation.
Unless those 4-5% are each buying multiple lenses. I mean, personally, I have purchased five different lenses than the 18-55mm lens that came with my original 450D kit. I know I'm not even remotely close to a "lens collector", as many people are.
Another thing I'd bet is, Canon only accounts for new lenses other than the kit bought. I am quite certain that more than 5% of DSLR buyers also buy other lenses, but I think there is a very significant market for used lenses. I'd be willing to bet that at least 30% of Canon DSLR owners buy another lens, and the majority of them buy one used.
Perhaps we're talking at cross purposes? The statement that, "...easily 4-5% never buy another lens," is what I doubt. The converse is that 95-96% do by additional lenses...that seems rather unlikely.
