FE lenses are a kludge.

News for you: FE's are E-mounts, too.

Thanks for the laugh. FE mount is an FE mount, not an E mount. Why would anybody want to use a lens designed for another system?

Just a kind suggestion for you: - in future when you are tempted to say something which might be wrong or stupid, try asking Mr. Google first!

FE lenses share the E-mount with the APS-C (former NEX) lenses.

Sony FE (full frame) lenses on NEX? - Steve's Digicams Forums

"I just stumbled upon a recent test of the Sony FE 55mm f/1.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* SEL55F18Z at SLRGear.com. They tested that lens on both a 'Full Frame' A7R and an APS-C NEX-7. That would seem to indicate that 'FE' lenses work on 'E' bodies."

They are compatible, so what? We all know that. It's still a kludge. Making a lens designed for one mount compatible with another does not change anything. If you listen to this point carefully, it might not go over your head this time.

You are right it is a total kludge and look at the prices on those FE lenses!

Thom Hogan asked if there would be anymore E lenses and the only thing Sony would say is FE lens fit on APS cameras (which Thom took as "no" because if the was "yes" there would be have bee a straight answer).

Here is what some FE lenses look like on APS cameras...so much for small size!
