Yes it is stabilised. The OS in the description is Sigma's designation for stabilization. There are two versions. The Sports version is $1800 new. The Contemporary version which I believe is smaller and lighter goes for around $1, 000 new. Even used, both versions are going to be out of your current lens budget, although the Contemporary model may be relatively close.
Yep it looks like the contemporary is close, though i dont need at the moment (i think around $500-$600 used, which is about the max for me per lens.. i blew the overall budget for now by 2x haha).
Side question related to the canon in general..
Is it common to end up with cr2 files that have say 3-6 white/red pixels.. those become crosses when converted to jpg ala compression i think. I ran into this yesterday with some 50mm test shots (it wasnt the lens i know that much and i dont think the camera/sensor is bad either).. i ran the manual clean 30sec x 3 remap sensor, they havent re-appeared..
I'm just assuming this can happen from time to time, maybe necessary to do the remap every so often to avoid this? (most couldnt be seen unless viewed on a 4k set or zooming in a few rolls of the mouse)
