There are lots of its and bits.

For example "Sony — Lack of NEX lenses is going to hurt them if they're not careful." but Nikon, canon are just fine because apparently they have much more lenses than Sony NEX.

Canikon have a much much bigger following and do not need as much lenses as Sony to get a big enough market share once they start doing something serious. Brand affixation, blind faith or whatever, but that should be not under-estimated, especially given their marketing and distribution strengths.

Bigger following is much more of a reason to worry about lens line up. Somehow the assumption is that if a large number of people are interested in a system they can live with small number of lenses. Which is clearly absurd.
