I have been looking to buy this lens as I have seen some of the sample images. I have searched online and I can't figure it out if it really is out for the E series cameras. I wanted to know wheather it will be fully compatible with the autofocus and shutter control. I don't want to manually focus this thing if I don't have to.

Also if it exists, where to buy?

Not available until at least September according to Sigma, and it WILL be available for 4/3.

As the lens is not available yet for 4/3, there are no reviews yet. But you can read some general info on this page:

According to Yodobashi's website, it's supposed to be available from the last third of August here in Japan--which means pretty quick. I'll try to check next week to see if they've got it in yet.
