As for why, I think we all know. Cost cutting.

That's just an assumption.

If it is true that this lens is essentially a Sigma design, then the more likely explanation is that Sigma's optical stabilisation isn't fully compatible with Oly's, or not as capable.

The fact that the optical formula is partly the same has zero or near zero impact on any other aspect of the lens.
