Quote from ktg View Post :
Always felt that Sigma should be pricing the Sony version a couple hundred less than the Canon/Nikon version since Sony's DSLRs use in-camera image stabilization, hence the Alpha-mount version of this lens doesn't contain the complicated "floating" elements required by Nikon's/Canon's in-lens image stabilization systems. Seems logical to me that this should significantly reduce the design/manufacturing cost of the Sony lens.
I think it still has IS so when you use a sony native adapter to the mirrorless nex series, you will still get IS. dont quote me on that, maybe they are selling a non image stabilizer version of this lens just for the sony and pentax since its included in the body.
