Is it just me or the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX is disappearing?

Title says it all... I had the lens in my wishlist for a while (since it looks like the new 50mm (A) will never be made for Pentax...) Anyway, I looked at Henry's to see what kind of availability they had and I cannot find it anymore, so I opted for B&H, no 50mm f/1.4, same story on Adorama.

Is it another Sigma K mount lens disappearing from their lineup or everyone where I usually buy stuff from suddenly stopped selling it? Because usually when they're out of stock they do still list the lens...

It was discontinued some time ago and replaced with the new Art lens, which has no Pentax version.

Which is rather confusing, since the art 35mm f/1.4 comes in pentax K mount.

Maybe Sigma considers the 35mm more attractive to APS-C users as a normal lens than a 50mm as a telephoto.

Since Pentax doesn't have a full frame camera wouldn't it make more sense to give us the 30mm f/1.4 ART instead of the full frame 35mm f/1.4 ART? If I was running Sigma that is exactly what I would do.
