Anyone know if there are differences between the two Sigma 10-20mm f4/5.6 lenses?

I posted this in the Canon thread, but was informed that I might get more responses here.

It seems there are at least two different versions of the Sigma 10-20mm f4/5.6 lens. The lens tips review was very good for this lens and that version has 5 contact pins as seen here:

I see on Ebay there are some with 5 pins and some with 8 pins both for Canon EF mount.

The dpreview article shows the 8 pin version here but states they reviewed the Nikon mount version.

Does anyone know if there are any differences between these two unreported versions?

I am hoping the 8 pin one has similar distortion correction as the 5 pin one reviewed by lens tips.

Thanks for any information.
