Sigma 24-70 2.8 EX DG HSM reports as 70-200 2.8 EX DG HSM II

So I've got a Pentax K7 and the above Sigma 24-70 lens. I love it to bits but it's got ONE VERY ANNOYING FLAW. It tends to masquerade in the exif as a 70-200 2.8 EX DG HSM II.

Any pentax users who have this problem happen to have a fix? I'd just like the camera to ID the lens properly.
