Sigma Telephoto Zooms with HSM for Pentax?

Can someone advise which Sigma HSM Tele-Zooms are made for Pentax mount at the moment. I see alot with HSM for C***n and N***n mount but hardly anything for Pentax.

I really want the Sigma 100-300mm f/4 but doesn't look like it comes with HSM in a Pentax mount.

Nothing yet. Only 70-200mmF2.8 is supposed to be HSM enabled. But do not bet that it will be out soon. My guess is at least mid 09.
Tamron 70-200mmF2.8 (with no HSM) was supposed to be out in March and a lot of people were ordering. Well it has been pushed back to Aug. And there were talk that it will be 09.

Oh well looks like I'll just have to take the non-HSM version.

At least I know my Pentax is a better body than their 450D/40D and the D80.

I sleep good at night.

It's sad but true: Sigma does not have any lenses available with HSM for Pentax yet.

This will most likely be corrected (yesh.) this fall when their 50-150mm f/2.8 HSM and 70-200mm f/2.8 HSM becomes available.

Theres also 120-400mm F4.5-5.6 HSM and 150-500mm F5-6.3 HSM coming soon-ish.

They have not announced a HSM version of the 100-300mm f/4 yet. (maybe never?)

I would rather they make the 120-300mm f/2.8 HSM with Pentax mount first though
