almost every nex owner uses an adapter of some kind.  some use the alpha adapter, others the canon fd or nikon, there are also the metbones, not to mention the wa adapters for the 16mm lens.  next you are going to whine about filters?

Maybe a lot of folks on forums here use adaptors, but I doubt your statement is correct in general.

If Sigma simply lengthened this already-huge lens to work with NEX, that'd be pretty disappointing IMO.  I'd much rather they optimize the design to take advantage of the short flange distance which will not only make it a lot smaller, but it might also make it work better.
