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.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a Sigma lens from Sigma than from Olympus?
