When is the Sigma 70-200mm hsm coming out?

I've been looking everywhere for it and can't find it. Yesterday though I googled "sigma 70-200mm f2.8 pentax hsm" and I got something. It seemed that adorma was selling it for $900, but later that night I went to search it again and it wasn't there. Is it out, and if it isn't when will it ever come out?

I think it was originally last quarter of 2006 so shouldn't be far away now

I wonder..

I wonder Sigma 70-200 HSM and Tamron 70-200, Sigma 50-150 HSM can drop SMC PENTAX DA☆ 50-135's price.
In Korea, 16-50 and 50-135 are little bit expansive than USA.
both lenses are about $1053(USD) in Korea.

Sigma is supposed to be delayed until autumn 2008.
Tamron 70-200: I got a mail today it's in within 5 days at the silly price of 769. Silly because it was 699 elsewhere, and apparently this is more than the expected price of the sigma. But...there's no Sigma, so they can get some profit I guess.

Yah, I'm wanting the 50-150 2.8 + a 1.4 tele converter. Give me almost the same range as the 60-250 f4 pentax is putting out with the added bonus that I have a 2.8 lens when I dont need the reach.
