Default Why aren't there any top quality Nex lenses available ?

I'm considering buying my first mirrorless camera and i'm seriously hesitating buying a Sony Nex because of the lack of lenses. ( i was interested in sony because of there high iso performance and top quality viewfinder)
Look at Samsung who plan to release a all bounch of top quality lenses with there nx200 :
30mm f/2 pancake
20mm f/2.8
85mm f/1.4
I mean the point is to make everything much smaller and handy but why make a super quality body like a 5n or c3 with both great high ISo results if you don't have a lign up of descent lenses.
Pentax 35mm f/2.4 AL SMC DA
Pentax 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 ED IF SMC P-DA Fish-Eye

Sony has announced the Sony/Zeiss 24mm f/1.8 as well as the Sony 30mm f/3.5 Macro, 55-210mm f/4.5 - 6.3 and 50mm f/1.8 lenses, all of which should be available in October or thereabouts.

They are available for pre-order.
