I'm hoping Sony will take some of the FF Alpha lenses and make new FE versions of them, especially some fast primes and a non-zess 24-70mm f2.8 zoom.

Would not bet on that. Alpha lenses are PDAF optimized with way bigger registration distance so there is not much one can copy from them. And then there is size, the F/2.8 FF standard zoom is very big, the Sony Zeiss 24-70/2.8 (no OSS) weights over 2x more than the 24-70/4 OSS. No escaping physics here, that stop from 4 to 2.8 takes a lot of glass.
