Everybody wants a... lens, until they see the price and size of it.

Look at the latest e-mount lenses. The prices are all over $1000 and the sizes are often bigger than their DLSR FF counterparts.

Who want to put a larger lens on a small body making is almost the same size as DSLR that has a working focus system?

First the E-mount cameras all have working AF systems, so do not spread missinformation about that. Yes the AF is slower then that of a DSLR but it is working and you know what? For most applications it is more then fast enough. Only in tracking (for sports etc) it is lacking...

Why not get the DSLR that can focus and that has real grip? You will even save money do those insane Sony lens prices.

Why not get a DSLR? Wel try to put a DSLR with a zoom lens in your pocket, or take it with you for a day hiking. In the end I know you will like the smaller mirrorless cameras over any DSLR. With an E-mount camera you can choose if you want a small and light package or a larger package. With a DSLR it is always the larger package you have.

Sony needs to go back to the APS size lenses and prices.

The FF lenses are for their FF cameras and are usable on the APS cameras too. The two Zeiss primes are tested as very good lenses, not cheap, but not more expensive then lenses in the same quality lenses of other brands. The 55 mm is often favorably compared with the $4000,-- Zeiss Otus lens. So in fact it is a bargain. The 35 2.8 lens is opticly very good and is not that large at all... So lets keep to the facts shall we?
