Sigma 30mm F/1.4 - Anyone have the HSM version?

I have the non-HSM and it's probably my favorite lens for all around use. But for video, the non-HSM version is pretty noisy so I always use manual focus for video. Until yesterday I was not aware of a HSM (newer) version of this lens.

Anyone have this? How quiet is the focusing noise? Google video searches only show either the old version or this lens on various Canikon bodies, which until now don't do full time af in video mode.

Thanks,
Shawn
