Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8. Any users?

Hello all,
I have difficulty finding about user experiences for the K-mount version of the Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 lens. <p/>
From what I read, I understand that its comparison with Pentax 50-135mm f/2.8 is like this:
- Pentax has dust-weather protection
- Pentax is lighter
- Both have good resolution (Pentax might be better)
- Sigma has less CA
- Sigma has more reach
- Sigma is significantly (about USD 300) cheaper.

K-mount version is probably not SDM for Pentax. Is this true?
Sigma Japan lists this lens as available for Pentax.
Do I miss something?
