those two lenses seem the first real proof that even now that full-frame finally starts to make slow mft-equivalent lenses which weren't available on full-frame so far

I think Canon has announced (released ?) one or two kit zooms with f/7.1 max apertures and we've been seeing more f/6.3 (Nikon is rumored to announce a 24-50/4.6/3 kit zoom with the rumored upcoming Z5).

In the DSLR era, they had APS-C. In the mirrorless era, I think both of them are trying to push the market to FF and bypass APS-C to the greatest extent possible. Canon has EOS-M but knows that many buyers don't want to get into that system. Nikon has the Z50 but I suspect they'd like to avoid fleshing it out.

So I expect that we'll see more relatively slow lenses for FF systems in absence of any serious DX stuff.
