weather resistant lense

Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM (883-205), is this lense water resistant?

I doubt it. There is no WR or other indication of such in the model acronym barrage.

Nope, you won't find a WR lens for Pentax from a third-party company, possibly due to warranty confusion in the case of seal failure.

Nope. If you want longer you either go * or 18-135.
