For Sony, the problem is IQ. their made flange back distance too short to make the camera as compact as they can, now they are paying the price - they just cannot make lenses perform well wide open around the corners. Once people buy into the system and want decent glasses, they can find none except use an adapter and shoot MF lenses. Not everyone's cup of tea.

This doesn't make any sense to me.  The short flange distance simply allows lenses that benefit from it (eg., the very good 10-18) to take advantage of it.  I think it also lets the 16-50 shrink more when it's not actually in use.

The 55-210 obviously isn't suffering from the short flange distance either (if anything, it's sharpest at 55mm where the rear element is closest to the sensor.)
