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

In your opinion, which will be the added value to have native Sigma FE lenses compared to the current coupled with the MC-11 adapter?

I see two issues with the current adapted Sigma lenses - they are bigger and heavier then they could be since they are designed for DSLRs and the AF would never be as reliable with adapter as native. For Sigma 135 F1.8 Art, for example, this may turn off most of the pro photographers who actually buy this focal prime as they would never trade 1 extra stop for the AF they can not trust.

very true
