Because of the flange distance. E-mount flange distance is 18mm. Existing lenses have different/longer flange distances. Can't just put an E-mount on them, they won't focus correctly. New lenses have to be designed for E-mount flange distance.

IMHO the original lens design shoul work fine. Just add some space to match the flange distance. The more demanding part is to make the electronics match.
