The Sigma 50-200mm HSM OS, what happened to it?

This lens was released in March, yet I haven't seen anyone who has it. Here's the DPreview post about it:

Sigma releases 50-200mm f4-5.6 DC OS HSM lens: Digital Photography Review

For some reason, after that I never heard anything about it. I was actually really excited that a new and cheap lens had come out for this range ($200 new) that I could get instead of the other brand equivalents, one that has OS and HSM, but I looked around at a few stores, and none of them had it in stock. Then I checked Ebay, and a ton of those sketchy (at least for me) stores were selling them at $200.

I was hoping to get one a little less for that so I checked all of the buy and sell forums that I'm a member of, but I never found anything.

Is this just the forgotten lens for everyone or what?

Where have you found it? I don't mean in stores like BH and stuff, I mean like on most photo forums, in Flickr photos (no results that I've found from it really) and other places on the web. It's like the lens never happened.

The lens has definitely not had much publicity. But I've had this lens for some time now, and I must say that I am very much pleased with the optical quality of this lens. At 50mm, it beats the kit lens by quite a good margin. I've some extremely good photos with it, and the build quality and finish feels good to hold on to.
