New Sigma AF 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM

anyone have the new 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM from sigma?
twice the price of the old HSM 11...but is it twice the lens ?

DP review gave it a good nice to see some real world examples of this lens on a pentax ....22 elements / 17 groups as a opposed to the older one with 18 elements/15 groups

Not really twice the lens. It's biggest advantage is the OS - although certainly sharper. At the new cost I'd rather buy the 70-200 non OS and save up for an upgrade later.
