If you really want dedicated APS-C, Samsung NX or Fuji X currently only have APS-C cameras.

The APS-C E mount lens selection is already pretty mature, something like 17 lenses on sony.net.  Considering there are only 3 FE E mount lenses available, it is only logical to assume most effort will be spent on FE lenses.

That being said, any of the telephotos would be designed for both anyway, so a lens like the rumored 85mm f/1.8 is certainly going to be FE because it makes no sense to make it APS-C because it wouldn't really save you much size in the lens and it is a useful focal length for both.

I wouldn't be surprised to see fewer APS-C only lenses, but again, they already have tons of them, so they don't need as many either.

However, it would appear they are going route of Canon/Nikon and I bet most premium lenses from now will be full frame (like no 50-150mm f/2.8, but 70-200mm f/4 instead).

Remember, E mount is E mount, FE just indicates if it has full frame coverage.  It is still E mount.
