Sigma 18-125 DC HSM reviews

There are two different reviews for this lens.
One in the legacy zoom part SIGMA 18-125mm F3,8-5,6 DC HSM Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database ,
and one in the current zoom part Sigma 18-125mm F3.8-5.6 DC OS HSM Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

If I'm not mistaken there isn't an OS version of the lens for the Pentax mount and the current version is an non OS one. So the 2 reviews should be united under the correct title

I don't know if there is a newer version in USA but I've just bought the lens from a SIGMA dealer in EU and when I asked for the OS function he pointed the Sigma site
http://www.sigmaphoto.com/shop/18-125mm-f38-56-dc-os-hsm-sigma
*For Pentax and Sony Mount, OS function is not available

not really important just curiosity

Yup, that's starting to sound correct. If the lenses have different names, though (do they?) then there should be a separate entry for it.

I guess only sigma or an official US dealer could clarify if they do have different names (the box and the lens I've bough were without OS mark) and if there is a new different version available.
It's not really important you're right it should remain as it is, so just thanks for looking my query Adam
