QuoteI suspect that the figures are more representative of vendor-lock-in through lenses than anything else (note that 3rd party lenses doesn't change this.) If swapping vendor was a $5 or $10 per lens penalty, things would be different.Your 'vendor lock-in' applies to Nikon users as well. If swapping vendor was a $5 or $10 lens penalty, things would be different - for sure Nikon users will be switching to Canon just as easily.
Ah, you've not understood what I'm saying, obviously.
Let me put it another way...
People buy or have bought Canon for the lenses.
People buy or have bought Nikon for the bodies.
A lesser product, E.G. NIKON, doesn't necessarily result in it being returned and for those that buy over the Internet, the hurdle is rather high so the product needs to be obviously bad rather than just "not as good."So what's your point?
Err, "A lesser product, E.G. 5D Mark III".
