Sony E mount system desperately needs Sigma and Tamron native lenses. Zeiss can only charge these prices in current vacuum.

Agreed but if you have read some of the comments from Sigma, sounds like a chicken and egg situation.

They are waiting until the market gets bigger for Sony E mount before making any lens for it and think users will be fine using their adapter until then.

Of course by the time the market becomes big enough the Sony E mount will have numerous options at 135mm not just this one and other current gaps in the Sony E mount lineup will also be filled up.

I think Sigma is making a big mistake, especially with their Art lens lineup.
