Sigma 70-300 OS?

ok...I don't get what the point is...to show that lens stabilization is better than in-body?
Sigma just released this for Sony/Pentax mounts...story on DPR...

Simplified Production

I think this simplifies production and helps to illustrate how inexpensive vibration reduction technology really is.

However there is an interesting test result floating around that the K7 plus OS is better than either one combined.

Did you even see how much they were charging for it? 59,000 Yen. Which equals $650. By comparison a K-x is 64,000 Yen. Yeah, a $400 premium is real inexpensive.
