They announced this a while ago - it's one of their new models sporting the revamped look and "use type" badge. The others are the 35mm 1.4 (ART) and 17-70 (CONTEMPORARY). This one is the pilot lens for the (SPORTS) line. I was also surprised they redid this one already but whatever, new lenses are a good thing.

sure - a new Ford or Chrysler is a nice thing as long as you don't want to sell the old version.

When I sold my 100-300 f/4.0 the guy who bought it thought it was the new version and I still lost almost 1/3 of the significantly reduced price I payed.

Using a plastic bag is no real option for me

Amazing how Sigma introduces one lens after the other - good for shopper not so fortunate for owners.

I tend to sell lenses every once and a while

Sold all my Nikon gear four years ago after using it for up to 12 years - with no loss except inflation
