this is where you are just silly - - sigma and tamron make lenses for every mount and they will continue to do so - - - its not like they will suddenly stop making e-mount - - why would they? the more mounts they make lenses for the more potential buyers they have

heck Tamron is partially owned by Sony and I would bet thet even so they will make m 4/3 lenses

No M43 owners are buying those Sigma lenses because they are too big and too slow. Compare the 19mm F/2.8 to Panasonic 20mm F/1.7. I don't think Sigma will risk alienating Canon, Olympus and Panasonic owners with lenses that are too big for their mounts. Instead they can make smaller, lighter lenses and make the majority happy. Plus I am sure Canon will be pressuring them.
