Sigma 150-500mm lens

Hello all. I wasn't sure where to post this so feel free to move it if it's in the wrong place.

I'm needing some advice. I have a Pentax K100D Super and was wondering if the Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM would fit my camera? Would I have to upload some software for it to work. Been researching on Google and have decided I definitely would like the lens but not 100% sure if it's compatible.

Thanks in advance.

Is this the lens you are talking about:

Any lens made by or for Pentax will work on your K100D or any other Pentax camera.

It does need to be the 100D Super to work with HSM - earlier *ist models, K110D and the non-Super 100D will not have the in-lens motor ability.

Yep, Jim is correct. I forgot my K100D wouldn't or couldn't use the HSM lenses. Sorry about that. Haven't had my K100D for 5 years.

Pentax K100D Super
Yes, I see you said so. Guess I saw that and why added the link saying it would work with your camera. I don't know why I added the other after Jim's reply. Can we say brain freeze.

My newer Sigma 150-500 works on my K5, but the autofocus not with my K10D
