Samyang announces E-mount lenses

Photorumors reports that Samyang has announced a manual 8mm f/3.5 FISH-EYE CS VG10 lens designed specifically for the Sony NEX-VG10 digital camcorder. It then goes on to say that the "lens will be officially introduced during the forthcoming Focus on Imaging fairs held in Birmingham [Mar 6-9th]" and exact release date and price will be announced later.

The article/press release concludes: "We are also about to introduce Samyang lens with Sony E mount for NEX system cameras."

The puzzling part about that is that the Sony NEX-VG10 and the Sony NEX-5 (and NEX-3) cameras, all use the same mount; the Sony E-mount. Did they mean to say that there are other lenses coming, or did the first sentence of the press release get accidentally moved to the end of it, or am I totally confused?
