Most likely because fast lenses tend to become expensive, heavy and bulky. Fast lenses also usually suffer from vignetting and coma at maximum aperture, and making fast lenses lenses compact only worsen this problem. It seems like most Nex buyers are into affordable, handy and compact lenses.

With excellent high ISO performance fast lenses might have lost some appeal for common users.

Seems like moderately fast super high quality lenses like the Touits have more appeal than sheer aperture alone.

Guess the Touits will sell well and bring more flair to the entire Nex line of cameras.
