They really should have released it with 4 primes covering the 24-85 range. It would have been better to do that with no zooms, or just the kit zoom, to be honest. But they are coming so it's no biggie.

Sure, for some people. But they didn't and it's selling well, so perhaps they did fine. Releasing it when the camera was ready was the right move. There are plenty of legacy glass users who were just waiting for a mirrorless full frame with a relatively short flange distance to accept old and manual focus lenses. Adding the lenses they did at or near the release just increased the audience that much more. They were smart to jump out of the gate. We might not see a full frame competitor for another year or more. And will that competitor have lenses ready at launch? Are Fuji's great lenses for APS-C able to adapt to FF without vignetting majorly? I doubt it. Samgsung and their lenses? Again, I doubt it. Sony is sitting pretty.
