If my understanding is correct, they will only invest in FE mount lenses which are compatible with APS-C.

Well, the thing is, there are already a whole lot of apsc lenses for e-mount. We have had some lists here with all native (sony or 3rd party) e-mount lenses and the lists got longer and longer. For apsc there are also the zeiss primes, the zeiss 50mm macro has also been added to the list not so long ago. If you can't afford zeiss, the sel50 is a very very good lens. For WA There is a very good WA zoom and a zeiss prime. The only thing perhaps lacking is a fast tele-zoom or tele-prime, something like 200 or 300mm 2.8 or there abouts, but I don't think sony is seeing that as a priority right now as it is a smaller market probably. The only serious lack is a portrait lens of about 90mm, but I believe the sigma 60mm is considered to be really good, though a tad bit too short.

So the more 'common' lenses are already there for apsc, but for fe there are only 3 and no native 3d party lenses yet. So it's no surprise they are now going to concentrate on fe lenses. If you have to have lenses that aren't yet available for apsc, you could always try the la-ea2 adapter, though not sure if that would do the a6000 good or bad as the a6000 probably has even faster af.

So what lens(es) would you like for apsc before you could decide to buy the a6000?
