Wish list for Sigma glass that is also PK

Sigma has a current offering of about two hunded different variations of lens'. Unfortunately not all of those offering are available in the Pentax PK lens mount.

Feel welcome to show which lens' you might want to see made available in PK from Sigma. Naturally not all of the options wil be available; so if you happen to have a personal favorite that is not on the list; just add it into your comments. Also noting, an edited version of this will be forwarded onto Sigma.

no 120-300/2.8 or 300-800/5.6? Those are the two that i'd like to see since pentax doesn't seem like it's going to bring the FA* 250-600 back.

The 35mm f1.4 is supposedly coming to Pentax mount. Warehouse Express (one of the main Pentax dealers in the UK) are even taking pre-orders on them.

Bring back the 100-300/4 HSM DG EX for Pentax. It has no OS, but we don't care.

35mm/1.4 and 180mm/2.8 in the list. But more than those I wish 120-300/2.8 HSM and working 1.4x and 2x teleconverters. And the new 30mm/1.4 HSM.

The problem with many new Sigma (and Tamron) lenses, apart from not being available in K mount, is that they are double the price of their older non-OS brethren. I therefore wouldn't buy them even if they were available in a K mount. All this so that CaNikon don't have to bother with sensor stabilisation

This has the advantage that Pentax lenses now look comparatively cheaper, even more so than many third party offerings, because they don't have any kind of stabilisation system built into them.

IMO if lens is for APS-C, it should be in K mount. I'd be interested in APO 50 - 150mm f2,8 EX DC HSM (II) and new 30mm f1,4 (with HSM).
