No please leave Sigma as is, I don't want to pay over priced lens like 500/4.

The prices surely would go up drastically if Sony would own Sigma.

They should give them the technical specs for the lens mount though, instead of forcing them to reverse engineer it.

Then maybe they wouldn't be a risk of compatibility issues with new Sony cameras, or problems with focus gears stripping out too easily.
