Sigma 800mm f5.6 lens for pentax

I was in the Sigma service center yesterday and i picked a new catalog for the lenses.
And it shows the 800mm f5.6 as being offered. It is AF Mount/UPC Code 0085126152451.
Can anyone confirm this? I was shocked. I thought it was not in the pentax mount.
If I have time i will call them tomorrow and ask the price. If avaliable?
It clearly showes the 300-800 not being in the pentax mount. But showes the prime to be in the pentax mount.

According to Sigma's website, this particular lens is only available in the Sigma/Nikon/Canon mount. I don't see why they'd bother with a Pentax variant, as there's not really a market for those sorts of lenses any more (unfortunately).
