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

True.

And why does everything have to be so huge? There are so many great legacy lenses that are smaller and plenty sharp enough, but just needed today's better coatings. Why couldn't they come out with a 135mm f3.5 around 285g? The Sony 50/1.8 was a step in the right direction. Old design, new coatings, great price. I could use a native 200mm F4 next, around 380g and AF / OSS...for about $300.
