Going rate on the Sigma 10-20....and more questions

This lens is coveted in every mount, and I'm thinking about picking one up myself. First question: what's the going rate on these guys? I'm seeing around $480 as the Amazon/Adorama/B&H consensus. That being said, is it available in the HSM version? I may be wrong, but I don't believe that they offer the f/3.5 with the HSM focusing system for the K-mount, correct? Or is every 10-20 sold now HSM, regardless of aperture?

Thanks for the help everybody

Yes, they do. Depends on what you want to do w/ it to determine which one you want.
The older ones is sharper at the corners for landscape. Makes no sense to me why Sigma would go w/ a bigger lens element and have crappier corners, but all the reviews seem to agree on this :-(
