The point I'm labouring to make is that if the average EOS owner owns only 1.4 Canon lenses, then the opportunity for Canon is surely to sell them more. This may require better promotion and/or more aggressive pricing.
I have 2 bodies and 14 lenses... I'm ok being abnormal.
DARN! I have 2 bodies and 9 lenses.... I have to sell one off to be "normal"....
But on the other hand I can't be the only one with two EOS bodies and eight EF/EF-S lenses.You're not! Which is why people on this forum are not representative of the typical EOS users.
I think the vast majority of dSLR owners simply don't see the need/utility. Honestly, I think a Speedlite with bounce capability would do more to improve the 'typical' entry level dSLR user's shots than another lens, but, "I don't need to buy a flash, my camera already has one!"
