We computed several search metrics with event logging data in November 2017, and compare them with English Wikipedia. They are searches on desktop only, since we have very few searches on mobile web on Commons (less than 100 search result pages daily).

The zero results rate for full-text search is slightly lower on Commons compared to English Wikipedia:

However, the clickthrough rate for full-text search is much lower than English Wikipedia, only 10.42%:

Also, users on Commons are much more likely to click to see other pages of search results:
