Currently Sony is making those lenses for E-mount that are small. Night eyes and tele guns are available for A-mount and may be put on the NEXes via an adapter. With FF NEX there will be no difference. The already have a FF E-mount video cam that comes with an A mount adaptor because there are no E mount FF lenses available at all. An E mount 300/2.8 lens will be as large as an A mount lens plus adapter. Makes no sense to develop such a lens for E mount.
