Sigma 24-70 mm/2.8 IF EX DG HSM

Has anyone else heard of the new Sigma Lens? I went to their site and it would appear that HSM will be available in the Pentax mount. This sounds exciting if not heavy (82 mm filter size IIRC) and expensive. I like the range, speed and the HSM though. Any thoughts? I have never used a Sigma. I was thinking of getting a Tamron 28-75/2.8. I may just have to wait and see.

irc, the Sigma 24-70 sells for $400-500 right now? I was kinda appalled by the DPR announcement that the MSRP for the new HSM version was 800 pounds.

Might as well go for the Tamron 28-75.

Sorry. I missed it. Link is back 4 pages of threads ago. Not much discussed but I did find (most importantly) a link to the price... 899 USD at Amazon. OUCH. Tamron is looking great.
