Weather sealed non-Pentax* lenses

Are there any 3rd party weather sealed lenses for Pentax?
I noticed post #3 in this thread...
I just never tought about that, only tought how to get money for some DA* or FA*, but if there are some other solutions, they could be considered.
So, do you know about such lenses, especially if they are from known manufacturers, like Sigma, Tamron, Tokina...?

I haven't come up with anything either, though I suspect it will only be a matter of time before the likes of sigma and tamron come out with some as a selling point for pentax bodies so I would most assuredly keep an eye out.

Something tells me Canon, Nikon, Sony and Olympus users might like them as well.

well I imagine they would but I think its pretty well known that pentax has the best weather sealing in its class (that sounded like a car commercial) and since its a big talking point for the pentax brand I can only assume such companies would target pentax first, though I could be wrong.

Yes, but I can't mount Zuikos on the K10D
I was thinking on K-mount lenses but from other manufactrers.

Maybe one reason of not having such lenses is that before K10D, only high class dSLR's had weather sealing, and people who bought them were also buying their "OEM" lenses, no mather on price. Now when we have even entry-class weather sealed body (K200D), such lenses from 3rd party brands could be really considered as an option for anyone.
