No Sony E APS-C wide-angle lenses from High-end and Mid-end manufacturers?

Why there are basically no high-end or mid-end wide angle lenses at all for APS-C sensors with Sony E mount? I go to European price comparison site, choose at least 120° viewing angle.

Every single camera is a fisheye camera, and there is nothing from Sony, Sigma, Tamron, not a single one.

And why all lenses are fisheyes? There are no normal lenses with 120-130° angle, that don't have that rounded fisheye look?

Here is the price comparison site link:

The people who would really know are likely in the Sony E-mount (APS-C) forum. I'm guessing no one has gotten around to designing one for E-mount yet. E-mount is still a young mount compared to the likes of EF, F, A.

All I know of is the Sigma 8-16mm but you'll have to adapt. It may not be considered a high-end, or even mid-end, lens when measured against today's standards.

Almost no APS-C 120 degree view lenses for ANY mount

It has nothing to do with E-mount. There are very few non-fisheye 120 degree viewing angle lenses for ANY APS-C mount...in fact, I can think of only two.

Fuji has it's own 8-16mm F2.8 for its mount, and Sigma has the 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 available for most DSLR mounts, many of which can be adapted to E-mount. If there are others, I can't think of them.

If you go to manual focus lenses, you can just about get there with the Venus Optics Laowa 9mm F2.8 Zero-D for E-mount.
