How long will it take before the big Japanese third party lens manufaturers (Sigma, Tamron, Tokina) begin releasing lenses for the RF mount?

I've been happy with my Sigma EF-S lenses and would appreciate to see less expensive RF lenses available.

What? Sacrilege!

I’m in this for the results, not the bragging value. Edit: I’m all for bragging about my results, but not about the brand on my gear.

You don't want the 28-70 f2 or 50 f1.2?

High ISO is fine and I’m not a big fan of very shallow DOF. And the price is outrageous, IMHO.

Seriously though, in the old days we used to choose systems often on the basis of the lenses available. If you are not buying into the new EOS R for the Canon lenses, why are you buying into it? Wouldn't you do better to buy Sony E mount where there are zillions of Sigmas and so on available? Sony have the most advanced mirrorless right now.

Let me paraphrase an answer from another forum:

Q: What do Canon shooters think of Sony cameras? A: They don’t!
