"Back in the day" a kit dslr lens would be 50 or 55mm, roughly f:1.7 to 2.0 for the entry-level bodies and f:1.4 for advanced models ... If they were to triple current production the price might drop another hundred dollars. But most beginners want zooms, no matter what.

I think this gets to the heart of it. Economies of scale are difficult to make work when the vast majority of people are happy with "good enough."

I know a lot of people with DSLRs and good mirrorless camera. Very few of them could tell you what a "fast zoom" is, or even explain aperture.
