that's a short time prevention only. When they try the cheaper lenses and the kit lenses, they may feel happy with it at first. But as time progresses, they may feel inadequate if their shooting styles requires more oomph from their gear.
As it is, I took quite some time to learn as well, thru trial and error. Wasted film, wasted shots due to my lousy skills. But as we do learn the skills required for proper shooting techniques, there may be a point when we do wish for better lenses (faster ones) so we can shoot in low light, fast speed, etc...
And as we get the next higher range of cam bodies, the older lenses (lower end ones) may not hack the job well. That's when the BBB virus will hit... and pretty hard too.
