I really don't want multiple mounts. NEX7 is APS, so is the a77ii... Why couldn't they just use the same lenses like the Samsung NX's ?  (NX30 and the NX300)

Because a mount is a legacy mount and has lenses tuned for Phase Detect Autofocus (and many more existing lenses).

È mount is Sony's new mount for mirrorless and has a much smaller mount to sensor distance.

One of the issues you'll see on this forum is that people believe that Sony are dropping a mount for è mount and they don't like it!
