Sigma has produced 8-16mm lens for pentax mount only with HSM  AFAI know.

Hi Kitsios_spyros,

the 8-16 is still available in the EU. Maybe not in every shop, but I never had the feeling that the prices in the US were significantly lower.

I own this lens and had to send it back once for repair, a HSM defect. Take into account, that you won't have any warranty when you buy this lens somewhere across the ocean.

Quick checked: digitfoto has it for approx 707 € incl delivery to greece (3 years warranty). Distriweb (french seller, via amazon) for 667 + delivery.

Kind regards

Albert

Albert, Sigma 8-16 has no HSM.

Hi Kesha,

My Pentax mount Sigma 8-16mm does have HSM (written in big bold letters right on the lens).

Cheers.

Ron
