Frustration and Impatience...bad combo

So, I really would like to get this new 50-150 lens. It seems like it'd be a perfect compliment to my 17-50 2.8.

What frustrates me, like it has to others in this thread, is that it's just hard to believe the size of the lens was that affected by the addition of the OS (granted there were also some updates to the lens elements, but still). The Sigma 70-200mm lenses, OS and Non-OS, are virtually the same size for instance. I sure hope that the released specs of the new version are wrong.

The other agonizing part of course is just the wait for the lens/pricing info to be released. I'm holding off on a purchase of the 70-200mm 2.8 lens for now...but could sure use a nice lens in that zoom range. I think typically it takes a few months for the lenses to get to market...feels like forever.
