It's just sad that Sonu is showing no more interest in APS-C. Yes - releasing one (not even a top tier) camera per year and one lens is for me a message that they have no interest in APS-C. And the worst part is that IF we will get a new gear from Sony it will be probably a camera that will require a FF lens as current Sony APS-C lenses are good for amateurs not for enthusiasts or semi-pro guys. We need a f2.8 zoom (min. 16-50mm), we need at least two F1.4/F1.2 primes (30&50mm)

We do have two good fast Sigma primes at 30 and 56mm.  Most of the better FE primes tend to be a bit large and heavy for the small APSC bodies, especially the zooms. More glass, of course, means more correction, size and weight.  It would be nice to have a really good APSC 16-50 f2.8 zoom, which likely would be substantially smaller than an FE equivalent.
