Sigma 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM - Still a "current" lens?

Morning all - Just looking for this lens to buy but the Sigma site does not seem to list it so I presume this lens is no longer current?
I did a filter search on the Sigma site for Pentax compatible lenses and it came up with the "APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM". Unfortunately the Sigma tech specs listed there do not actually list the Pentax mount as being supported .
Can any one shed some light on this one?

Thanks for that Doc. Yeah looks like latest lens (the one listed on the Sigma site) does not support Pentax and is a totally different construction (13/9 Vs the older 22/7 assembly)

If you use the 'choose a mount' button it lists Pentax. May just be some inconsistencies in the website, not unheard of.
Also the video list the mount at :35

Yes that is what I thought when I did the filter search as you describe. It is Interesting that Sigma do not list the earlier lens as discontinued. (I liked the earlier Sigma site which gave a proper list of the discontinued lenses)

Well the page has completely changed now. Prices discounts have also been implemented. (Can't complain about that )
