According to you:
The FE lenses average $875 in price and that may go up with the next lens.
The 70-200mm FE lens is LARGER than athe Canon FULL FRAME version in every dimension.
There are no new APS lenses announced at this time, but Sony said they are work on more FULL FRAME lenses.

According to you, Nikon must be targeting fools with $1300 APSc lens (17-55/2.8), and m43 manufactureres with $1200-1600 lenses for the tiny format.

I am glad that Sony would be focusing more on FF lenses. In fact, on A-mount I wish Sony had maintained more of the traditional FF lenses as FF rather than creating APSc primes (namely 35/1.8 and 50:1.8... I own neither for that reason). Minolta used to have superb 35/2 and inexpensive and small 50/1.7 both FF.

Heck, I would easily consider Tamron 70-300 USD on A-mount (a FF lens) over Sony DT 55-300 (a lens that replaced the FF 75-300 which was about the same size and cheaper).
