Since I haven't been "in the loop" between about 1997 to 2011, I don't know if Pentax had one (or more) F2.8 70-200 lenses during that period

Is the FA* 80-200/2.8 close enough?

By all accounts an excellent lens, but big and heavy due to Power Zoom, which doesn't work on DSLRs.

Actually if I recall correctly there is some minor feature of Power Zoom which does work on DSLRs, but it isn't the main power zooming feature.

Power Zoom, Pentax's big blunder of the 1990s.
