Why are E Mount lenses so much more expensive?!

I was looking at Sony 18-200mm lenses out of curiosity today to see if they updated the old silver model.

While scrolling BH Photo search results I noticed that Sigma also had an A-mount 18-200. The difference is that the Sigma is only $350 while the Tamron/Sony 18-200 (Tamron no OSS by the way) are $750-$850.

Tamron: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/835058-REG/Tamron_AFB011_700_18_200mm_F_3_5_6_3_Di_III.html
