Sigma 150mm f2.8 EX DG OS Macro for Pentax

Hi folks,

I am betting that this listing at Adorama.com is a mistake. This lens is not listed as being made for Pentax mount on the Sigma America website. However, I hope it is going to be made for Pentax mount..

I suspect that here may have been a limited run, because I found one for sale here in Australia a while ago. never purchased it but despite popular opinion, there appears to be one or two out there. (???)

....it says "for pentax - please call"

So whether that's used with an adapter, I'm not sure???

Perhaps Sigma is actually going to release this lens for Pentax. That would be good IMO.

Good new and perhaps a promising sign that Sigma recognise that with plenty of older model K mounts in existence and the K3 selling ok, that it's worth testing the water with a few more lenses again??

I called Sigma usa and they told me that they have no plans to make a pentax version of the 150 macro so I'm betting that that's a Negative!!    Ramone...
bought 5 pentax spotmatics while serving in Viet Nam 1968, they got me started!
