No, not as far as I know. Still one of the reasons to buy Pentax rather than 3rd party. I'm surprised Sigma has not started that though it seems logical that it would be an advantage for them to push.

There are currently no third-party weather sealed lenses for Pentax. Sigma has been experimenting with a few "splashproof" designs for other mounts, but it doesn't seem to be widespread yet.

Only Pentax makes WR lenses for Pentax cameras.
Some other brands make weather resistant lenses and accessories for their own cameras.

If you mean to communicate via ttl, you cannot. You should be able to use it in manual mode.

Using it as an external dummy wireless flash is simple enough - but using it directly on the camera, no. Nikon flash units communicate differently compared to pentax flash units.
