Is it just me.....

We've all heard that Sigma has announced new lenses for Pentax, but I can not find any info on when these new lenses will be available and prices for them. Lenses I am interested in are:

- Sigma APO 50-150mm F2.8 II EX DC HSM for Pentax
- Sigma APO 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM for Pentax

Anyone hear anything about these lenses availability or price points?


Thanks.

I asked to sigma japan but they did not tell me the price and availability of 500 and 400mms.
They told that 50-150 will be same as C&N versions.

But my estimate is, 150-500 will be around 1500$. It should be more expensive than bigma due to OS. It has more optical elements as well.

Edit: We used to pay for the HSM that we did not have and now we have to pay for OS that we will not have.

Amazon has no Pentax lens listed (:-( but shows the Sigma and Canon due on April 10 for $980, with the Nikon, at the same price, on May 10.

A Froogle search turns up only the Sigma, Canon and Nikon lenses on Adorama's website at the same price and "New item not available yet. Delivery expected to start April 2008" for all 3.
