Hi Photonius.
Funny, that was one of the first things that sprung in to my mind. Looking at some of the signatures on here, there are people with more than 6 extra lenses, as a representative sample to extrapolate into the numbers of owners I reckoned the number that never see a second Canon lens would be higher, however there are folks like me who own a couple of third party lenses, so lots of bodies will see lenses other than the kit lens.
I would love to know the true numbers for this, enquiring minds need to know!  :)

Cheers Graham.

70 million bodies, 100 million lenses...   30 million extra lenses ...   so perhaps 25 million bodies with 1 extra lens (not counting the "kit"), i.e 2 lenses total...  2 million bodies with 2 extra lenses (2x2 = 4 million lenses), 250'000 bodies with 3 extra lenses (750'000 lenses), 50'000 bodies with 4 extra lenses ( 200'000), ... 8'000 bodies with 5 extra lenses (40'000) ... 1500 bodies with 6 extra lenses (9000),   another 1000 extra lenses left.

so roughly 40 million bodies never saw even a second lens...

I know it's simplified, bodies are replaced more often than lenses, but the those who have multiple lenses, have multiple bodies. Overall tough, many dslrs will only see a single lens.

  • So there!

I'd guesstimate it a smidge higher, but whatever, because that's still a lot of "SLR" cameras that could just as well have been "bridge" cameras. It also makes one think, seeing as these purchasers never bought a second lens, whether they truly needed an SLR camera, and whether an SLR'ish camera (as in mirrorless) would/will not fit the bill just as nicely?
Happily ignoring the laws of physics and the rules of photography to create better pictures.

yes, second hand, third party, more unknown variables. In your case, you have actually 4 bodies, so you're not far off a single lens / per body.              As to the owners of more than six lenses,  they will likely have multiple bodies, lowering the average.          I intended the finish off the last 1000 lenses with   "5 people own the whole Canon lens set" - but if they do, they probably collect the bodies too, so it's not 1 body - 50 lenses.
