Re: Why are so few lenses bought per DSLR? (Motivation of two polls)

Never mind dSLR, back in the day you had to be really keen (and have plenty of disposable income) to buy a range of lenses for your SLR. I only ever had two lenses for my OM-10, the kit 50 and a Tokina zoom. That was enough to do most of what I wanted to do at the time and it was as much as I was willing to spend. I'm sure that was the situation for many other people; the ILC factor was convenient for us but almost secondary to the then unique functions of an SLR body (like view and metering through the lens).
