They're certainly not available for purchase yet, but it could be that the user got the mount replaced on his Canon or Nikon version. Sigma offers that as a service as long as the lens is available in the mount you want.

That will be my next lens purchase. Probably. I said that before and got a Tamron 70-200 f/2.8.

I hope it doesn't come out very soon, because I've got an extraordinary lens I'd like to sell you ...

That's not an SN, that is a UPC - the barcode that is scanned or entered when you purchase something.

Not really, that info is not recorded in EXIF data at all, the only way to confirm is to ask this Ronin1 character for the UPC from his non-existant box.
