Re: Every APSC mount gets the new Sigma 1.8 zoom except us?

Given that this lens is being released in SLR mounts, I have to assume it has a long flange focal distance to support such bodies (I've not read the specs). That said, to make this in an e-mount, they would essentially be bolting on an adapter. Sure, they could make it a full function adapter with autofocus and aperture control, but that would make this a very large lens. It seems that Sigma will release SLR lenses and mirrorless lenses and support multiple mounts within each category.
