The reports “Lens usage and this report are very much alike. Yet the big difference is in the sorting.
This reports first sorts on the camera, then the body and lastly the lenses. This is fine when you want to know how many photos in your catalog are taken with these different combinations.

However, if you want to buy a new lens, you might be more interested in the usage of the lenses. Then “Lens usage is much more convenient, because it first sorts on the lenses and then the camera and bodies. So you can see very quickly how much each lens is used. Especially if you use your lenses on different cameras!
