Well like I said, I was kind of hoping the third partys would have been on board since the start. And the fact that they are still not on board is a big limitation. Sony could have just given them the specs and let them create at least one lens each.

Well then your expectations are unrealistic.  There is a third party maker on board from the start.  They're called Zeiss.  You want cheap superzoom for the A7 (if your 18-200 request is anything to go by), but such a lens makes no sense on high quality FF sensors - Sony already got burned making too many superzooms for APS-C E-mount when their market should really have been primes (which they finally got round to in the second and third years of the NEX).

I suggest you have buyer's remorse.  Sell your A7 and get a Canon SL1 with Tamron 18-300 and be done with it.
