Nope, it's been discontinued. You can probably get them used, though, or consider getting a Pentax SMCP-DA* 50-135mm f/2.8 ED (IF) SDM Autofocus 21660 B&H

Thats a shame, I had 50-135 before on K10D but traded it away because of the AF speed. Might give it a shot again if I can't find sigma one used

Whatever happened to the updated version of this lens? I know it was going to be huge and, therefore, a non-starter for me, but it never came out did it?

Actually Sigma still make it but its got a new barrell with OS. Making it bigger, heavier and more expensive
Not sure if Pentax mount is out yet?

It apparently never came out in any mount. Perhaps they realized what a mistake they were about to make and canceled it. It was announced long enough ago that it certainly should have been out by now. They should bring back the last one. Sigma seems to make disproportionately more mistakes in their product planning.
