So, I have been looking to get some quality budget lenses for my a6500. I can't afford Sony e-glass, that starts at 2K. I can find good lenses like the Sigma 120-400mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom for under $40 (used), but the problem is, they are all for the stinking Sony A-mount or Canon or Nikon.  What is the freaking deal?  The E-mount has been out for over 7 years.  Why are no lenses manufactures making lenses for the E-mount?

(PS. Yes, I know there are adapters, but the good ones cost from $250 to $400 and they are hit and miss and not nearly as good as a native lens.)
