Unfortunately, Wing Shing and Man Shing don't carry any Sigma products!!
By the way, if you're planning to mate it to a Canon EOS body, be sure to bring it along and test if the lens actually work on the body. The all-electronic body/lens interface of the EOS system makes it so much harder for independent lens manufacturers to reverse-engineer, and newer software on the latest EOS cameras often lead to incompatibilities with earlier generations 3rd party lenses.
A friend of mine learned this the hard way last year, when he bought a new EOS-3 the day before he left for an airshow in Singapore. As he mounted his Sigma lens on the -3 for the very first time at the show the following day, the whole system just went dead on him. Ended up having to buy another lens in Singapore right away so that his photo trip won't be a total washout.

The 70-200 EX has been around for a few years, so there's a possibility that compatibility problems with the latest EOS bodies may already be lurking around the first batches of that lens. Of course if you're buying a brand new lens from the latest production batches today, chances are that it will work. Then again, it's always prudent to test the lens/body combination on the spot.
That's quite a good price for that lens. I still recall it costing in the neighborhood of HKD5000 when it was introduced not too long ago. Anyway, now I know how to identify you around CLK!!
